DETROIT (AP) – Officials say five of seven people accused in a cheating conspiracy at a Detroit casino have pleaded guilty in the case and are awaiting sentencing.
The office of Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette on Monday gave an update on the case, which involved hundreds of dollars of individual payouts to players on lost bets during games of Texas hold’em at MotorCity Casino.
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.
Investigators say the other six people involved knew Green and “associated with him” before the suspected cheating. State police investigated following a request from the casino.
