BetOnSports Officials and Employees Plead Not Guilty

Founder of BetOnSports, Gary Kaplan, one of the world's largest online gambling companies, pleaded not guilty to federal racketeering. Alongside his brother and sister, Neil and Lori, also pleaded not guilty yesterday, August 1, 2006, from a wire fraud of a 22-count indictment at the US court.

The US government claims that BetOnSports took billions of dollars from US residents by phone and internet. This claim is without paying taxes. The US government wants BetOnSport to give back the money they have taken from the US residents.

David Carruthers, chief executive of BetOnSports online gambling, was nowhere to be found during the court hearing Monday afternoon. He is supposed to enter a not guilty plea. David Carruthers was arrested July 16 at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport by federal agents. Then Carruthers was transported to St. Louis according to court officials.

Last week Carruthers was fired by officials of BetOnSports. An order was made to BetOnSports by a judge of the United States that the sports gambling company would not accept wagers from US residents. The London Stock Exchange has also suspended trading of the company's shares.

Employees of BetOnSports Tim Brown, William Lenis who owned a mobile promotion company that did marketing for BetOnSports, Monica Lenis, William Luis Lenis and Many Lenis, who all worked on promotions and marketing, also pleaded not guilty.
