Kelly Mathis Requests a Jacksonville Trial in Allied Veterans of America Illegal Online Gambling Trial


Kelly Mathis, a Florida lawyer and witness in the Allied Veterans of America online gambling bust, has been accused of gambling related crimes and has requested to be tried in Jacksonville where they allegedly took place.

As a result of the bust a senior state politician resigned as investigators determined that Allied Veterans of America was a cover for a $300 million gambling ring he was involved in.

It seems that Mathis was the contact for Allied Veteran affiliates, which prosecutors believe ran internet cafes. Mathis pled not guilty to several charges including money laundering and running a lottery.

"I will be found not guilty," Mathis said Thursday at a news conference in Jacksonville. "I committed no crime."

Mathis claims that he was onboard to offer legal advice only and was not involved in the illegal activities. He is scheduled to go to trial in September and nearly 60 of the Allied Veterans defendants may enter pleas in the upcoming week.

On Wednesday, Allied Veterans defendant Johnny Duncan pled no contest to one count of money laundering and four counts of maintaining an illegal lottery. He will face probation sentencing in the near future.

After an interview regarding the Allied Veterans, former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll resigned but maintains that she had part in the case.
