Man gets supervised release in NY gambling case

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A federal judge in upstate New York has sentenced the ringleader of an illegal online gambling operation to three years of supervised release.

Philip Gurian of Boca Raton, Fla., was sentenced Tuesday to time served, the supervision and a $100,000 fine for conspiracy to launder money.

The 52-year-old Gurian was arrested April 10, 2013, and has been in custody since.

As part of his release, Judge Mae D’Agostino prohibited Gurian from going to locations where gambling is the focus and from possessing a computer or Internet capable devices.

Gurian laundered at least $8 million through co-defendant Michele Lasso, who was sentenced earlier this month. He apologized and says he is going to live a productive life.

Relatives and friends of Gurian say he is planning on writing a book.
