Woman Pleads Guilty to Running High Stakes Gambling Ring

This week a Missouri woman plead guilty to running an illegal gambling ring as well as laundering money to the sum of $500,000.

Carol Hazer of Farmington, Missouri plead guilty to the crimes in federal court this week. She admitted to running the gambling ring and then hiding $500,000 she made from it from the IRS. She did this by under reporting the income she made. She had used some of the money she made operating the ring to purchase a house and a car. She was busted after a lengthy investigation by both the IRS and FBI.

Hazer is facing up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $500,000. Her fate is scheduled to be decided by a judge on January 17th of next year.

Maybe my way of thinking is odd but I kind of feel like the crime she did doesn't deserve up to 20 years in prison and money fines. People do a things that are a lot worse and get less sentencing.

I understand what you're saying, but still for me the sentencing seems a bit rough. It feels like sometimes people do worse crimes than this and pay for it with less sentencing.

True , it’s a bit like South Africa, over here for Murder you might get life but more than likely get out after 5 to 8yrs for good behavior but dare not pay tax or not pay something owing to Government or you will get life with no chance early parole

That just shows what's the priority’s of any particular government, but the sentences must be hard if you ask me, that's prevent good number of people of even think about it...in the end if she was sentenced.. let's say to 2 years...many people would decide...it's worth it...so...

There's a huge difference between 2 years and 20. Besides, not only she is possible getting those 20 years but also 500k which she laundered. So I think that is quite a lot.
