This week a husband and wife in Massachusetts pleaded guilty to jointly operating an illegal gambling ring across state lines, generating more than $1 million in revenue.
Bonnie and William Morley plead guilty to both money laundering, gambling, and conspiracy charges. The couple, aged 53 and 62 respectively, took a plea deal that well have a favorable outcome for them. William will serve six months in jail, while Bonnie will have 3 years of probation. They will also give up $1.1 million in cash, six cars, and get rid of their business, which was a gambling front.
The couple used their business to send gambling machines to different locations throughout the states of New York and Massachusetts. The sites then operated the machines and split the payouts with the Morleys.
