5 of 7 in casino cheating conspiracy awaiting sentencing

The final two defendants, including former casino dealer Darryl Green of Detroit, are awaiting a pretrial hearings. Schuette’s office says Green worked as a dealer in 2014 and conspired to make payouts on loosing bets or not collect payment on lost bets.
