    Default Another Black Friday sentencing - 3 years for payment processor

    In the most severe sentencing among Black Friday defendant's so far, Ira Rubin has been given a 3-year prison term for processing payments for Americans to and from online poker rooms.

    (U.S. District Judge Lewis) Kaplan called Rubin an "unreformed con man and fraudster" and rejected Rubin's claims that he was finished committing crimes after 15 convictions.

    ...

    Federal sentencing guidelines called for a prison term of between 18 months and two years, but Kaplan said Rubin must spend additional time in prison because of the "extremely high threat" that he would commit crimes again and the need to protect society from behaviors that led Rubin in the poker case to be "brazen, quite deliberate and deceptive" in defiance of U.S. laws.
