Arkansas Man Pleads Guilty to Running a Sportsbook

Last week a man from Fayetteville, Arkansas plead guilty to running an illegal gambling business after he was caught running sportsbetting websites for nearly two years.

Timothy Clower Bryant plead guilty to the charges in US District Court, and is currently awaiting sentencing after the court accepted the plea deal. Bryant ran the site from January 2010 and December 2011, taking in more than $7 million in wagers on both football and basketball games.

Also convicted in the case was Albert Read, who helped set up the sites for Bryant. For his troubles Bryant paid Read between 12-15% of revenues, which added up to $832,000.
