Not unexpectedly, John Lefebvre followed in the footsteps of fellow co-founder of NETeller Stephen Lawrence and plead guilty to a conspiracy charge before U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel during a hearing in Manhattan today.
Lefebvre's plea contained the following statement:
"I eventually came to see that promoting payment services to online gambling businesses serving customers in the United States was wrong."
The conspiracy charge levied against him included:
-transmitting interstate and foreign bets
-promoting gambling offenses
-operating an unlicensed money transmitting business between 1999 and 2007
