Dustin O. Kendrick, 30, was sentenced to two years' supervised probation in Clinton County District Court for the felony charge of prohibited acts at a gambling game. Kendrick got busted for cheating in February 2009 on an Ultimate Texas Hold'em table at the Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Clinton. Apparently, he had palmed two $25 chips and then laid them atop of his original $50 bet after winning the hand, trying to bilk the Iowa casino for fifty bucks. The worst part about this for Kendrick is that the conviction is a felony, a big price to pay for a mere pittance of a crime.
In addition to the lifetime ban from Iowa casinos, he was fined $750, but the judge had the good heart to suspend that. However, Kendrick must seek treatment for his supposed gambling and alcohol addictions.
My take: Well, it's a tough break getting the felony conviction on that. I think Mr. Kendrick oughta keep out of casinos in EVERY state! But for life?
Nah!...Just until he gives up the thoughts of cheating.
