Man Sentenced for Running Online Gambling Website:  FBI Agent was Customer

SHREVEPORT, La. — (Associated Press) - A Bossier City man has been sentenced to three years of probation and fined $50,000 for operating an illegal internet sports gambling site.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said Wednesday that U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. sentenced 34-year-old Terry Lee Doty Jr., who pleaded guilty in April to one count of transmission of wagering information — a federal felony offense.

According to FBI testimony, Doty was the local administrator for a gambling site based in Costa Rica. Finley's office says Doty had about 280 clients placing sports bets with him, one of whom was an undercover FBI agent.
