More Guilty Pleas in BetonSports Case

The brother and sister of BetonSports founder, Gary Kaplan, have plead guilty Monday and agreed to forfeit millions in gambling profits, though it is unclear where they will come up with those millions since neither were paid very well as mere "supervising employees" of the company. 

Neil Scott Kaplan, 43, plead guilty along with his older sister, Lori Beth Kaplan-Multz, 48.  The younger Kaplan had left the company years before indictments were handed down.  His first two years in Costa Rica were spent sharing a three bedroom apartment with other marketing employees in San Pedro, a suburb of San Jose. 

Another interesting development is one of Penelope Ann Tucker, 64, pleading guilty.  Tucker was Gary Kaplan's long time accountant who spent much of her time in Antigua before relocating to Costa Rica in 2002.

Tucker's arrest in the States was announced long after the initial indictments were handed down.  She was not among those named in the first indictment of July 2006.  Two other defendants remain at large.

Each pleaded guilty to a felony racketeering conspiracy charge and agreed to turn over money held in Swiss bank accounts reportedly linked to their earnings while at BetonSports.  The Kaplan siblings also pleaded guilty to an additional conspiracy charge.

Back in April, former BetonSports CEO, David Carruthers, also plead guilty. 

A federal grand jury handed down the indictment against Gary Kaplan, Carruthers and some of its executives as well as a few low level employees.  Also indicted were three individuals who ran a separate marketing and promotions firm that worked closely with BoS.
