Two members of international gambling enterprise convicted of racketeering conspiracy

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

A federal jury in Oklahoma City convicted two individuals today for their participation in a scheme involving illegal gambling, announced Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Sanford C. Coats of the Western District of Oklahoma.

Kelly Dorn, 53, of Oklahoma City, and Kory Koralewski, 45, of Parker, Colorado, were found guilty of racketeering conspiracy.  Dorn was additionally convicted of conducting an illegal gambling business.  A sentencing hearing has not yet been set.

According to the trial evidence, from 2003 to 2013, Dorn and Koralewski conspired with others to operate Legendz Sports, an international criminal enterprise that ran Internet and telephone gambling services from Panama City.  Legendz Sports took more than $1 billion in illegal wagers, almost exclusively from gamblers in the United States betting on American sporting events.  Dorn worked as a bookie in Oklahoma who illegally solicited and accepted sports wagers as well as settled gambling debts.  Koralewski facilitated the movement of illegal gambling proceeds from the United States to Panama. 

The case was investigated by the FBI and Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation, with the assistance of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Marshals Service. 

The case is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney John S. Han of the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Robin L. Summer and Assistant U.S. Attorney Travis D. Smith of the Western District of Oklahoma.
