Carruthers Case is Closed

January 11th, 2010

Many of you are familiar with the David Carruthers Case that has been going on since 2006. But for those of you who don’t here is a quick run down. David Carruthers is the CEO of Betonsports which illegally took bets from US costumers. He was indicted by the US government in 2006 and pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy in 2009.

Well on Friday Carruthers received his sentence. He will spend 33 months in prison, plus he had already agreed to forfeit $43 million dollars to the US government. So the case that has gone on for over three years finally comes to an end. In fact that follows the sentencing of Betonsports founder Gary Kaplan who was sentenced at the end of 2009. So the Betonsports saga has come to an end and it was in favor of the US government which is no surprise. This was to show the muscle of the US government when it comes to illegal sports betting and the goal was accomplished.
