Two Missouri men have been charged by a federal grand jury for conducting an illegal internet sports betting operation.

William Lisle (57), and Kenneth Lovett (72) were arrested in Joplin, Missouri and charged with 16 counts of using the internet to transmit wagering information including placing bets on sporting events. They allegedly conducted their betting business for the last 8 years.

Lisle is also facing 15 counts of money laundering, as he reportedly sent money via Fedex to Costa Rica to conceal the profits he made.
