Posted on 24 July 2012 by "T".

On Monday, Absolute Poker co-founder Brent Beckley got a 14-month prison sentence for his involvement with the online poker site's illegal actions before Black Friday. Beckley pleaded guilty to criminal charges, including bank fraud and wire fraud, in December last year. However, the 14-month sentence probably is a big relief for Beckley since he was facing a maximum sentence of 30 years.

In total, 6 of the 11 men who were accused after Black Friday have 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
