Each count carries a sentence of one year's probation, though the probation will run concurrently.

not possess a firearm nor leave the judicial district without the

officer, and will be required to clear any transfers of funds or assets
without the consent of his probation officer.
The owner of Legends Sports, Bartice "Luke" King, was acquitted on a
racketeering (RICO) charge and convicted on two counts of money
