An Oklahoma online bookmaker was sentenced to a four year prison sentence following a plea agreement that would require him to cooperate with prosecutors. 

David Roy Tune, 62, pleaded guilty to 20 counts of violating anti-gambling laws and one count of conspiracy.  Most of the wagers were placed online with a now defunct Costa Rica sportsbook. 

It was revealed that Tune forwarded some of the money collected from losing bettors to a man in a man in Costa Rica beginning in 2008.

An Oklahoma City police officer, Roland Benavides, was identified as one of Tune’s clients.    Benavides is currently facing charges for illegal gambling in Cleveland County.
