The Black Friday process seems to be little by little putting everyone in their place, and when we say "place" we mean to the prison. A few months ago, we announced the judgment of John Campos, the first implied that he was sentenced to imprisonment. Today we get a new case.

This is Chad Elie, one of the payment processors PokerStars, Full Tilt and Absolute Poker, which was yesterday sentenced by the judge, Lewis A. Kaplan. According to him, Elie meets all requirements to spend some time in the shade:
