Two Black Friday defendants plead guilty

Tags: Black Friday, Chad Elie, full tilt poker, John Campos.
Posted on 28 March 2012 by "T".

Two Black Friday defendants have pleaded quality in the past few days. On Monday, it was reported that Chad Elie, a Las Vegas Businessman, pleaded guilty to conspiracy, a charge that will give him up to a year in prison.

Elie will also pay back the $500,000 he earned from processing online poker payments. Yesterday, Forbes reported that John Campos, the SunFirst Bank Vice Chariman, also has reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors and will avoid a trial just like Chad Elie. However, it remains unclear what charges Campos will face.

Campos (right) and Elie (left) were arrested already on April 19 in 2011, 4 days after being indicted by the Department of Justice for their involvement in illegal online poker operations (illegal money transactions). Their sentences will be set in October this year.

In total, 6 of the 11 men who were accused after Black Friday have now pleaded guilty to their crimes. The ones who still haven't pleaded guilty are: Ray Bitar & Nelson Burtwich from Full Tilt Poker, Isai Scheinberg and Paul Tate from PokerStars and Scott Tom from Absolute Poker

The pictures are really scary, they already have guilty look, that may not have helped them…
Does the time they have already spent in prison counts to decrease the time they will still have to be arrested, or not? I never understood very well the remand matter, when someone is arrested to prevent future crimes before he is judged.

Hopefully, all perpetrators Black Friday pay for what they did to us, tremendous damage to the reputation of the Company Full Tilt Poker and stay afloat as soon as possible to recover our funds

very well that people acknowledge their guilt. I think if all 11 people had confessed to the crime, it is not delayed for a year. secret sooner or later it becomes clear ..
