Georgia Arrests Official in Gambling Raid

A Georgia Department of Staff Revenue was one person that was arrested last week during an illegal gambling raid, and officials are accusing him of allowing the ring to operate.

Ronald Huckaby was arrested in the raid, and even had his Department of Revenue ID badge on him when police broke in and arrested him. He stands accused of racketeering, as he allegedly accepted a $13,000 watch and round trip airline tickets in exchange for information on helping keep the ring afloat. The ring supposedly supplied gambling machines to nearly 70 stores in The Goober State. Those stores reportedly paid out prizes in cash, which goes against the law.

Speaking about the case Macon District Attorney David Cooke noted: "It's disturbing anytime a law enforcement agent stops being an agent of the state and instead is alleged to have become an agent of a criminal enterprise.

"There are criminal organizations that are operating just like the ones alleged here, and they're throughout the state."

Cooke hasn't pleaded guilty as of press time and he's presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Ha-ha..yeah, that's a good joke.

What can I say..he would plead to what his attorney thinks would give them the better option in court but just a fine and a dismissal won't be be heavy enough sanctions..this guy should face a bit of jail time if you ask me.

Maybe this is just a small patch of a huge iceberg Smile
There are everywhere countless government officials who are willing to do anything (very carefully) to help whoever benefit him economically.
