Stephen Cline, owner of Spinners, a Pickaway County establishment, has pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering and operation of an illegal casino.
Last year Spinners as well as Cline’s home were raided after complaints that Spinners was paying out cash prizes, which is illegal under Ohio law. Gambling machines, cash and documents were seized during the raid.
As part of the plea deal, Cline will also forfeit $160,000 in cash and two vehicles, a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2013 GMC Sierra. Cline will be sentenced at a later date. He could face up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine for the money laundering charge and up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine for the illegal casino charge.
