RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - A Richmond man is facing federal gambling charges in San Diego.

The Richmond Register (https://bit.ly/2anvdIE ) reports Jason D. Taylor was one of 14 men indicted last week. The indictment alleges Taylor was a bookie for an illegal gambling ring operating out of a San Diego casino.

Taylor was released Thursday on his own recognizance by a U.S. magistrate in Lexington and ordered to appear Wednesday in San Diego federal court. Spokeswoman Kelly Thornton of the U.S. attorney’s office in the Southern District of California said Taylor is charged with transmitting wagering information and participating in an illegal gambling business.

An attorney listed in court documents as representing Taylor didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday.
