Cheating Gambler Gets 6 Years

     SAN DIEGO (CN) – The head of a gambling ring that bribed casino dealers to do “false shuffles” was sentenced Monday to 70 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $8.5 million in forfeits and restitution. Phuong Quoc Truong also must forfeit two houses in San Diego, two properties in Vietnam, a Porsche and a Rolex.

     Truong is one of dozens of members of the so-called Tran Organization charged with defrauding casinos across the United States, and money laundering, federal prosecutors said. Thirty-seven people have pleaded guilty in the scheme.
