Las Vegas Sports Bettor Taking Plea in Federal Wagering Case
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A prominent Las Vegas sports bettor and family members are due to plead guilty to reduced charges to avoid federal trial on allegations that they headed a multimillion-dollar illegal wagering operation.
Defense attorney Kathleen Bliss declined comment about the agreement ahead of pleas scheduled Monday by Glen Cobb, his parents Charles Cobb and Anna Cobb, and his step-daughter Monica Namnard.
Glen Cobb is expected to plead guilty in U.S. District Court to two misdemeanor charges of accessory to transmission of wagering information.
The others are each due to plead guilty to one misdemeanor count of the same charge.
The family's former business, Lycur, is due to plead guilty to felony transmission of wagering information.
The plea deal calls for the forfeiture of more than $4 million to the government.
