Closing arguments to be heard in case against Legends Sports owner
Closing arguments are set to be heard in the federal case against Legends Sports founder Bartice "Luke" King.
Jury selection began two weeks ago today.
The jury was given 103 pages of instructions by US Judge Stephen P. Friot, which focus on each of the counts against Mr. King, the laws of California, Colorado, Florida, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and how to interpret federal statutes such as the Wire Wager Act, among other laws.
Legends Sportsbook had previously received a gaming license from the Panamanian Government in June of 2004, where the sportsbook operated before losing their license and being forced to close in March of 2013, when King and 33 other individuals and 23 businesses allegedly associated with Legends Sports were indicted.
