Poker Payment Processor Pleads Guilty in NYC Court
A Canadian man that worked as a payment processor for online poker companies has pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in connection with a US government crackdown on online poker.
Mr Ryan Lang entered the plea last week in a federal court in Manhattan. Lang had been working as a middleman to help poker companies get around US laws designed to prevent banks from processing online poker payments.
He carried out numerous transactions over a three year period, helping financial brokers to make fake statements and trick banks into accepting payments.
He apologized for his crimes, and now faces a potential penalty of up to 30 years in prison.
