FBI sent fake techs to seek evidence in Vegas gambling case: Lawyers

If defense attorneys succeed in getting a federal judge to throw out the evidence seized following a raid on the Caesar’s Palace hotel rooms, they say they will not only gut the prosecution’s case but also establish new limits on how far the government can go in such investigations.

By Dan Whitcomb

. Attorney’s Office. I think it is a truly new area of 4th Amendment law, especially in the electronic age,” said David Chesnoff, who represents defendant Wei Seng Phua in the case.

In seeking search warrants for the villas, FBI agents asserted that an independent contractor who had been called by the defendants to fix an Internet outage had seen evidence of a sports betting operation.

“Unsurprisingly, every court to consider anything remotely similar has found it flagrantly unconstitutional,” the lawyers say.

A federal judge in Las Vegas is expected to rule on the motions following a hearing in December and Chesnoff said that if that judge rules the evidence inadmissible, “that’s the end of the case.”

A spokeswoman for the FBI’s Las Vegas office referred calls about the case to the U.S. A public information officer for that office said on Wednesday she could not comment outside court on a case pending trial.

(Reuters) – Lawyers for eight gamblers charged with running an illegal sports book are challenging key evidence in the case, saying it was obtained by FBI agents who posed as Internet technicians to gain access to their Las Vegas hotel rooms without a warrant.

If he rejects the defense motion and allows prosecutors to use the evidence, a trial will likely begin early next year.

“(We) have been unable to find a single time in which any law enforcement agency in the country has ever resorted to using a scheme like this one – terminating a service to a residence in order to deceive the occupants into calling for assistance,” the defense attorneys say in their court papers.

But attorneys for the defendants, in their motion to have the evidence suppressed, say that the FBI actually disconnected that Internet service, then had agents impersonate computer technicians to get inside and search for evidence.

Say ‘yes’ to legalizing gambling in Hawai‘i in 2016

Most recently, House Bill 2788 was written in 2012 to establish a single casino in Waik?k?, but failed to receive enough votes during the election year. states. Legal gambling would attract additional international cruise lines to Hawai’i while providing established local cruise lines with additional entertainment options.



Society tolerates alcohol yet forbids other equal, if not less damaging, vices: gambling, recreational drugs such as marijuana and the selling of sex.

As attitudes toward gambling have become more relaxed, games of chance have been legalized in 48 of 50 U.S. However, gambling would generate tax revenue and employment opportunities as an additional form of tourist entertainment. The American Gaming Association reports that gross gaming revenue for the U.S. While gambling problems such as addiction and shifting disposable income between businesses exist, the benefits far outweigh the costs. People over 18 have full control of their bodies and may consume anything or pursue any activity that does not harm anyone else or their property.

Hawai’i would be unwise to attempt becoming the Las Vegas of the Pacific. In November, three Honolulu men were arrested for allegedly operating a gambling house that grossed $109,000 over three months, complete with seven gaming machines and a backroom baccarat table.

The extent of the black market in Hawai’i, which includes gambling, is estimated to be from one to 10 percent of the 2013 state gross domestic product (GDP) of $70.11 billion. If legal, residents of Hawai’i would likely spend more of their disposable income at home instead of Las Vegas.



Prohibition of alcohol was repealed due to popular opposition after politicians realized they did not have the money or manpower to effectively enforce it. Now, lawmakers are considering the legalization of online gambling along with 10 other states.

Tourists would probably not come to Hawai’i solely for gambling, as there are far more established casino vacation destinations. increased by almost $10 billion to $37.34 billion in 2012, of which Hawai’i’s businesses and government received nothing. However, that revenue evades local and state taxation, as illegal businesses have little incentive to follow other laws or business standards.. Similarly, in Hawai’i, cockfighting, sports betting, video gambling machines and backroom card games are available to locals and tourists willing to track them down. Alcohol has been legal in the U.S. In election year 2016, Hawai’i and its politicians should follow suit to improve O’ahu’s economy.

There have been several attempts to legalize gambling in Hawai’i, but none have received enough political willpower to succeed. However, if implemented correctly, legal gambling could boost the local economy. except for a brief prohibition from 1918 to 1933, despite findings from the National Institute of Health that alcohol contributes to the deaths of an average of 88,000 people annually. 

“Most economists believe outright prohibition leads to an underground economy,” University of Hawai’i at M?noa economics professor Sumner LaCroix said.

Attempting to enforce prohibition of vices such as gambling, recreational drugs and sex sales wastes tax revenue and police time while simultaneously increasing violence and criminal profits. Hotels featuring casinos would likely undergo renovations to offer gambling, leading to an increase in construction and hotel jobs

Is there a Chicago Casino Coming in the Future?

A casino can bring in a lot of money for the owners of the casino.  A city-owned casino, a Chicago casino, has the potential to bring in a lot of money for the city, in this case the City of Chicago, Illinois.  Although the voters in Chicago had been against such a casino in previous years, it seems the tide is turning.  One-half of voters said they would be in favor of a casino.  The profits of such casinos would help pay some of the bills.  Cities all over the United States are having money problems and looking for ways to increase revenue.  A Chicago casino would draw tourists to the Windy City.

A pole taken by the Chicago Tribune and WGN-TV indicates that 47% percent of voters are in favor, although 41% still oppose a casino in Chicago, as reported in USA Today.  It seems a majority of those in favor of a Chicago Casino are under the age of 50.  While 56% of men would like a casino, 39% of the women say no to a casino.  Perhaps women are more cautious regarding how they spend their money.

There will be much more discussion on a Chicago casino when lawmakers head back to the State Capitol next month for a lame-duck session. In the meantime, study up on all the casino games and be prepared to try to beat the odds if a Chicago casino finds its way to the Windy City.
