He may be facing upwards of 50 years prison time, but that didn’t stop Las Vegas businessman Chad Elie from marrying Playboy Playmate Destiny Davis just one day after he and nearly a dozen other co-conspirators were named in an indictment against three major online poker rooms.  The two were married in Little Church of the West. 

Court records show that Elie is already facing charges in a massive fraud case being prosecuted by the Federal Trade Commission in Las Vegas.

Authorities claim that Elie was the mastermind behind a fraudulent $275 million Internet billing scheme.

Friday’s indictment seeks $3 billion in money laundering penalties and forfeiture from the defendants. 

Though Elie was arrested on Friday, he appears to have gotten out pretty quickly.
