Manhattan Poker Case Sentences TV Producer

Bryan Zuriff, a forty four year old television producer has been sentenced for his role in a massive high end illegal poker ring. This high end poker ring has celebrities, Russian mobsters, art dealers and high society folk all gambling with one another. Last month raids were taken place on this gambling ring and it lead to the arrest of multiple individuals. The majority of those convicted with illegal gambling pleaded guilty to their charges as they knew they’d already been caught.

Mr. Zuriff admitted that he was performing these illegal crimes to the US Federal Court. He admitted that he was a major contributor when it came to running the ring and that he also had a serious gambling addiction in need of help.

Federal Prosecutors wanted to have Mr. Zuriff sentenced to jail for one year. This didn’t fly by though as the judge in this case gave Mr. Zuriff the opportunity to live more freely. Bryan now has to live in his house for the next six months, afterwards he’ll have probation and 300 hours in community service. He’ll also have to pay a twenty thousand dollar fine for his actions.

Bryan Zuriff isn’t just a small time producer on TV though, his Showtime series Ray Donovan roughly averages more than 1.4 million viewers every single week.
