In an aggressive and bold move, the US Attorney's Office of the Southern District of New York have indicted executives of 3 on-line poker sites. The charges are money laundering and bribery which stem from the the allegation that the gambling proceeds were funneled away from the poker sites and into purported on-line shopping sites. Attorneys for the defendants question whether poker sites are illegal in the first place. The indictment certainly puts at risk the future - and liberty - of the thousands owners of existing on-line gambling sites.
