Doug Booth cops a plea in federal gambling case

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A Bowling Green man accused of running an illegal gambling business, enters into a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney's Office. Doug Booth pleaded guilty to all eleven counts against him in federal court.

They include five counts of money laundering, five counts of failure to file federal income tax returns, and one count of transmission of wagering information.

Booth also must forfeit nearly half-a-million dollars in currency, 24 silver bars, 60-thousand dollars in poker chips, two airplanes, and two homes in Bowling Green. But we're told he is negotiating with the U.S. Attorney's office to give the government more money so he can keep the homes.

Booth's final sentencing is set for May 28th.
