Five leage commissioners submitted a letter to the Canadian federal government asking for regulation of single game sports betting.

Copies of the letter were sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as well as the country’s finance minister, justice minister and attorney general.

Larry Tillery pleaded guilty to engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from specified unlawful activity and tax evasion. He was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison. Tillery was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,000,040.00 and to forfeit approximately $2 million in cash, jewelry, and sports memorabilia that were proceeds of his illegal gambling enterprise. A money judgment of $32,758,541.00 was also ordered by the court.

Judy Tillery pleaded guilty to structuring of financial transactions to evade reporting requirements and was sentenced to serve two years federal probation. Judy Tillery shares the forfeiture judgment with her husband.
