BOISE – A 57-year-old Boise man who admitted to federal prosecutors he knew an illegal gambling business was being run out of a house he owned has been ordered to serve one year of probation and pay a $2,500 fine.
Skinner “Skip” Anderson II was sentenced Tuesday for misprision of a felony, according to U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson.
Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill also ordered Anderson to complete 120 hours of community service.
Anderson owns a house at 6655 W. Victory Road in Boise. It was there that Kings Santy operated an illegal gambling business. Anderson knew of the business and failed to report it to authorities.
Santy pleaded guilty earlier this month to running an illegal gambling business. His sentencing is set for April 21. He faces up to five years in a prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.
The U.S. government has also filed a civil case against Anderson and is seeking forfeiture of the residence where the illegal gambling operation occurred.
