Okla. AG Secures $3.5M From Anadarko Couple

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office has reached a deal to secure $3.5 million from an Anadarko couple accused of laundering money through an illegal gambling ring that involved Internet cafes in Florida.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced Thursday the settlement agreement with Chase and Kristin Burns, who were charged criminally in Florida in the case.

Chase Burns owned International Internet Technologies and was accused of supplying illegal gaming software to outlets in Florida, violating that state's gaming laws. He is one of several co-defendants in the case that have reached deals with prosecutors.

The criminal case that resulted in the arrest of a Florida attorney and several co-defendants earlier this year led to the resignation of Florida's lieutenant governor and a ban on Internet cafes in Florida.
