WHITEHALL, Pa. -- An attorney who was sentenced to prison for trying to murder a noted sports handicapper and then paroled just two weeks later has left Pennsylvania and relocated to Michigan, as was a condition of his parole.

Gambling 911 can exclusively report that attorney Robert Creem, 70, of Whitehall, who three times in the past year tried to run over with his car handicapper Dale "Philly Prince" Stickel, 53, also of Whitehall, has moved to Auburn Hills, Michigan, a Detroit suburb, to live with a brother.

"I just talked to Creem's parole officer, who is in regular touch with me because I am the victim, and he told me that Creem has left the State of Pennsylvania and relocated to the State of Michigan, where he will live with his brother," Stickel told Gambling 911 Tuesday.

"That was one of the conditions of his so-called parole, which I'm still fuming about," Stickel said. "Creem admitted in court he tried to run me over on three separate occasions, he gets sentenced to many months in prison and then gets out on parole after only two weeks? And all he has to do is leave the state to get that? It's bullshit!"

Three times in the past year, the now-disbarred attorney tried to run over the capper with his car, as a long-simmering beef between the former neighbors came to a violent head.

Each time, Stickel was able to jump out of the way of Creem's vehicle at the last moment, including one time when the capper was walking another neighbor's pet cat.

The incidents took place at an upscale gated condominium complex in Whitehall, a suburb of Allentown, where Stickel lives and where Creem used to live.

Last month, on St. Patrick's Day, Creem was sentenced in Lehigh County Court in Allentown to 9-23 months in Lehigh County Prison, also in Allentown, by Judge Kelly Banach, after admitting he thrice tried to run over Stickel and copping a plea.

But after serving only two weeks in prison, Creem was shockingly released, much to the dismay of the capper.

Conditions of parole stipulated that Creem had to leave the state and never go near Stickel again.

Stickel, who takes his capping alias "The Philly Prince" from his hometown of Philadelphia, has worked in all aspects of the sports betting industry.

Before establishing the website Atlantic City Odds (www.acodds.us) and the Twitter feed phillyprince1 and becoming a professional sports handicapper and bettor, he worked on the other side of the counter, as a bookmaker at English Sports Betting (ESB) in Montego Bay, Jamaica, one of the world's first offshore sports betting operations.

While at ESB, he also co-hosted along with former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon the ESB-sponsored "Las Vegas Sporting News Radio Show," a weekly nationally-broadcast radio program about sports handicapping and sports wagering.

He also appeared on the "Las Vegas Sporting News Television Show," also sponsored by ESB.

As a handicapper, he has had numerous celebrity clients buy his picks, including former pro hockey player and current TV commentator Jeremy Roenick.
