USA vs Luke King: Trial Proceedings began today

04.14.2015

The United States District Court of the Western District of Oklahoma started trial proceedings for USA v. Bartice A. “Luke” King, case CR-13-063-1-F. Jury selection was scheduled for 9:30 this morning. Judge Stephen P. Friot is presiding over the trial, which is estimated to last two weeks.

The indictment against Luke King was unsealed on March 20, 2013. It states that Mr. King was responsible for setting up Legends Sports in Panama and conducted gambling business in Oklahoma and elsewhere in the US - both through internet gambling and "traditional bookmakers," among other federal charges. He was granted bail in May of 2013 after posting $2.5 million in cash.

Legends Sportsbook received a gaming license from the Panamanian Government in June of 2004. The sportsbook grew their international online business over the following nine years, in large part due to staying in good standing with all players. After the indictment was opened, Legends.com had their gambling license revoked in Panama and were forced to close their business and their primary betting website, Legends Sportsbook.
