Sentencing of BETonSPORTS Founder Gary Kaplan is Postponed
But that proceeding has been rescheduled for November 2 at 1:30 p.m.
U.S. District Judge Carol Jackson granted the change at the behest of Kaplan's Texas attorney, Chris Flood. Flood has been clocking some serious overtime trying to acquit Kaplan's brother-in-law, Warren Hoeffner Jr., in a fraud and money-laundering case. Hoeffner, a Houston attorney, was indicted in 2007 for his alleged participation in a bribery scheme. The seven-week trial was declared a mistrial.
Flood asked for Kaplan's sentencing to be postponed because the Hoeffner trial has kept the defense attorney from properly preparing for Kaplan's hearing.
