U.S. Law Against Online Gambling Evokes Criticism

The law against online gaming advertising recently introduced in the U.S. is receiving much criticism. More over it has intensified after the new developments in the federal case against BetOnSports advertisers that has been in process for about two years.

William Hernan Lenis, William Luis Lenis and Manny Lenis plead guilty in a St. Louis court to their involvement in the advertising of BetOnSports’ sportsbook website, if to be exact the interstate transportation of online gambling merchandise, the transmission of online gaming information and misdemeanor counts.

Between the year 2000 and 2006, Hernan Lenis’ mailing company called “Direct Mail Expertise” distributed around 2 million BetOnSports ads. The family’s attorney claims that they were involved in marketing aspects only. Yet, all three Lenises will be charged in October with jail time.
