An ex-cocktail waitress at Mohegan Sun casino involved in a high-stakes scheme to cheat the Mohegan Sun Pocono casino of almost $420,000 pleaded guilty last Thursday (September 8) to a federal money laundering charge (click here to read the full story on the scam).

Rochelle Poszeluznyj, age 38, a resident of Kingston, struck a plea deal on August 1 with federal prosecutors, agreeing to admit that she helped a casino bigshot (the casino's VP of player development) and a frequent customer secure personal ID numbers for rewards cards that the two men later duplicated and used to collect roughly $419,000.

According to court records, on September 8 Thursday, before US District Judge A. Richard Caputo, Poszeluznyj entered the plea on a single count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. She was then released on her own recognizance pending her sentencing.

The ex-waitress has faced many charges in county court, including 174 felonies, but they were withdrawn when federal prosecutors charged her in a criminal information filed on July 30.

Prosecutors state that she could face up to 20 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release and fines totaling up to $500,000. If she accepts responsibility for the crime, her sentence may be reduced. She will be sentenced on December 13.

As for the other two men involved with the scam, they have pleaded not guilty, but are engaged in plea talks with federal prosecutors.

This woman is looking at an awful lot of prison time if she is found guilty. The temptation to do this must have been huge but, if you are caught, is the downside worth it?

Why oh why do people still think that they can get away with frauding their companies and not least probably their employers by scamming them to get themselves a whole load of money. Such a crazy old world in which we live. It will be interesting to see what the other parties to the conspiracy get in terms of jail time.

We are reading like one case per week lately with casino frauds.
Either they have started happening more frequently, or nobody was mentioning them before Smile
No matter what, that sentence seems very big one.
We have seen worst crimes with a smaller penalty.

WTF? You kidding me? Greed can't never be satisfied, huh? I know!

I could see frustration brewing.

Oh, sh*t, I might not have given a server a generous tip when I was losing or in a bad mood. I kinda feel bad now. Well, anyway, everybody wants to be (decently) rich, right?
