A man who was one of the ringleaders of the million dollar celebrity online gambling ring has been sentenced by a federal judge in New York.

Phillip Gurian was given a sentence of time served and three years supervised release as well as a fine of $100,000 after he plead guilty to conspiracy to launder money.

During his supervised release Gurian will not be allowed into any betting establishments, and will be forbidden from owning or using a computer or device that can access the Internet.

The defendant forfeited between $8-10 million after his arrest, and is alleged to have made at least $150,000 per day during the ring.
