Oh Craps! Casino Cheater Convicted

A Tennessee man knew when to roll ‘em but didn’t know when to fold ‘em, so he got caught. Now he’s gambling with his freedom.

Prosecutors say Richard Taylor, 43, of Memphis was the ringleader of a group of gamblers who cheated Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun out of $70,000 in 2007.

Several dealers were also part of the scheme and allowed late bets at the craps table, officials said.

A Connecticut jury convicted Taylor of larceny, conspiracy, cheating and other charges. 

Odds are that Taylor might face more than 40 years in prison when he's sentenced July 10.

Eleven former casino workers still face charges in the case.
