Affiliate Indictment Stands in US Court
by Emily Swoboda

A New Jersey judge last week denied an attempt by New Jersey-based online gambling affiliate Nicholas Drakos to have an indictment against him dismissed.

Drakos, 48, was arrested in April 2004 after assisting undercover detectives in placing bets on his Web site, He was indicted in November 2004 and charged with promoting gambling, conspiracy and money laundering between January and April of 2004.

The state's constitution contains no statute or amendment explicitly making Internet gambling illegal, and that's exactly what Drakos' attorney, Robert Dunn, argued in the request for dismissal.

Dunn also argued that Drakos did not know that running a gambling Web site was illegal and that along with his donations to the State Police and a local police union, his client, in fact, sent business cards that clearly advertised his online gambling business.
