Money seized from couple involved in illegal gambling

Jul 29, 2013 7:01 PM

An Oklahoma couple, who were involved in what was termed as illegal gambling in Florida now faces the prospects of having nearly $8 million confiscated by the Oklahoma attorney general.

The two were part of the 57 people arrested in Florida on gambling charges involving Internet cafes. Their attorney said they were merly a software provider who sold an Internet service and did not participate in illegal gambling.

A district court judge has denied the couple’s motion to have the money returned to them, thus leaving the attorney general in a position to grab the money.
