BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) UPDATE -- In a plea deal in federal court last year, Doug Booth pleaded guilty to five counts of failure to file federal income tax returns, four counts of money laundering, and one count of transmission of wagering information.

Now in a federal court filing, a Bowling Green attorney is charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering with a D.B.
13 News has confirmed through an unnamed source that D.B. is Doug Booth.

Attorney H-Harris Pepper, Junior is accused of conspiring with Booth to conceal and disguise financial transactions using proceeds from illegal gambling activities.

The U-S Attorney says those transactions include buying a percentage of Hard Six, LLC, buying a percentage of apartment complexes in Bowling Green and Russellville, and creating a company to provide approximately $200,000 to Pepper to cover Booth's gambling debt, all allegedly paid for with money made from illegal gambling activities totaling more than 900-thousand dollars.
