Gambling Case Results

Internal Reference #8002

Facts: The sheriff’s office executed a search warrant at the location in reference to the operation of an illegal lottery operation. The ∆ was found inside the booth where the lottery tickets were being sold from, with several customers at the window to the booth purchasing lottery tickets as the warrant was executed. Also found in the booth with the ∆ were several “tally sheets” or ledgers of several days worth of illegal lottery ticket sales. Also found in the booth with the ∆ was a date stamp which was stamped on each ticket sold, to assist the operators in identifying the tickets that they had sold. Also found hanging on the wall just outside of the booth was a dry erase board with the winning numbers for several past lotteries written on it. Eleven customers who were found inside the location in possession of illegal lottery tickets were arrested.

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything until the end!! Thomas
My wife (Mother of Stepson) and I Hired Mr Foley to represent my stepson in a minor criminal case. We would highly recommend as it is obvious to us That Mr Foley Genuinely cares and wants to do the Best he can for you which he did for us. Also has a great rapport with all parties in the courtroom..... Steve
Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, and got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also I would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case. Jamar
Roger is a very compassionate person, he truly cares about his clients. He helped me with my case and was there for me every step of the way even if it was just reassurance that I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is absolutely the best! Cassandra G.
I think your firm did a great job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are better than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case. Jim
