Q: WHAT KIND OF PUNISHMENT AM I LOOKING AT FOR CASHING OUT A $90 TICKET AT THE CASINO? OFFICER SAYS ITS A FELONY

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law for Ohio on May 6, 2014

Answered on May 6, 2014

Follow Question


Charles Snyderman's answer
In my opinion, your problem is that the person who left the money came back for it. The victim is that person, not the casino. The fact that the casino was aware of your prior activity doesn't matter. As far as that person is concerned, you stole their money.

Andrew Bresalier's answer
A: If you are a natural person, verses a fictitious (i.e. corp, llc, etc.), you are permitted to represent yourself in court. However, Bky is a VERY COMPLICATED area of law, involving a combination of State Laws and Federal Procedures.

Debt is not the only thing to look at when considering Bky. Income must be examined to confirm you pass the Means Test (income is compared to those in your community). You must also examine transfers/sales (court could reverse transfers or sales for less...
