Online Casino Boss Is Finally Released From Jail
By Andrew B
David Carruthers, the former chief executive of BetOnSports, was released on bail of $1 million (£530,000) by an American judge yesterday, after a month in custody.

Raising the $1 million bond and meeting the conditions set by the judge proved difficult, but last night Mr Carruthers was able to sleep in a hotel room in the St Louis suburb of Clayton. He will only be allowed to leave the hotel only to attend court, meet his attorney or for medical emergencies.

The Scot, who faces charges ranging from racketeering to fraud and conspiracy, was arrested on July 16 by FBI and revenue service agents as he was passing through Dallas airport in transit from London to the groupís headquarters in Costa Rica.

Mr Carruthers had been detained in a medium-security federal prison in Fort Worth. When he attended a bail hearing five days later, he was shackled and chained to a line of prisoners.
