Justin Franciscotty, his wife Ana and Justin’s sister-in-law Stephanie Uselton, West Montgomery residents, were arrested on June 17, 2008. All of them were charged with second degree money laundering.
The charges came about after an investigation into an illegal online gambling operation. The operation was being run through an illegal website based in Costa Rica (it looks like an offshore gambling operation, but you can’t operate offshore from the U.S.).It was found during the investigation that the trio was receiving large amounts of money through the U.S. Postal Services.
Inside the house, police found some envelopes that came from different parts of the country, and the room set up with several different satellite feeds, to watch the games that were being bet on.
Police confiscated pricey jewelry and three computers that are believed to give more leads into the case.
