Earl Railey says he and six other poker players weren’t stealing from Motor City Casino, just taking advantage of a sloppy trader. The authorities don’t buy it.”>
The game was Texas Hold Em, but it might as well have been Take the Money and Run.
A motley crew of 7 card sharks plus their cant-lose trader allegedly went all in on a cheating scheme to win and never lose or describe whenever they played poker at Detroits Motor City Casino, authorities claim.
Five of the players have already folded and are expected to testify against the trader and one lone card shark arrive trial time.
The so-called ringleader in the poker pilfering scam is 65-year-old retiree Earl Railey who told The Daily Beast he took a plea deal and accepts being labeled a cheat.
Raileys deal includes admission to charges of conspiracy, robbery, and gambling activities. He says while others have been able to plead down from felonies to misdemeanors, hes facing 18 months probation and some time in jail because hes a habitual offender.
I was young and stupid, he told of his prior sentences including armed robbery and cocaine trafficking.
