FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Minnesota man accused of running an illegal gambling operation in North Dakota has pleaded guilty.

KFGO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1Bv9B45 ) that 69-year-old Gerald Greenfield, of Bloomington, Minnesota, pleaded guilty to interstate transmittal of wagering information and conspiracy to commit money laundering. A separate charge of conducting an illegal sports betting business was dropped.

Federal prosecutors say Greenfield took approximately $10 million each year in wagers and discussed receiving “several million dollars” from gamblers in Fargo. Greenfield allegedly ran the gambling operation for four years and made an annual profit of between $500,000 and $600,000.

James Henderson, of Santa Monica, California, is Greenfield’s attorney. Henderson says Greenfield has never denied that he was involved in bookmaking and that all the agreement does is “formally admit that on the record.”
