Ryan Lang, one of 11 men indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice on Black Friday, pleaded guilty to U.S. conspiracy charges on Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, New York. From 2007 to 2010, Lang, 37, severed as a middleman between poker companies and brokers who tricked banks into processing money for the gambling businesses.
Lang apologized in court for the crime he has committed, which can give up to 30 years in prison.
"I wish to publically apologize to anyone I've harmed by my conduct," Lang said.
ok that is more or less what i wanted to see- someone going to jail (let's hope he will eventually get there)- let's get real- full tilt was a criminal organization- some dudes are guilty, some probably didn't know the whole picture- but the guilty ones should go to jail imo
send them all to jail and give us our money back....or is ryan lang the fall guy...the man who will plead guilty to everything so the rest can walk free.....maybe a few extra million in his bank account for when he gets out
Wow, a 30 year imprisonment for a financial crime? I thought this would only be for homicide related crimes. Ok, Bernard Madoff got more than this, but he also stole, only for him, a lot more than Ryan Lang (I suppose, values aren’t known, but I think we can’t compare a bank to an online poker company).
another middleman nonsense, what about charging the actual people who were stealing money from the players and doing something good to help people get their money back.. only hypocrisy and bs by US govt
Just take everyone envolved in the mangerial part of this scam, take all their assets, re-open Fult Tilt and give us our money back. Or, let' us use it toward playing poker like we wanted. How long is the U.S. Govy going to drag it out. They know who's involved and to what degree their involvment was or is. C'mon!
