Dallas-based electronic game room operator ordered to cough up $1 million as part of plea agreement
Aces Wired executives pled guilty to gambling charges.
Aces Wired operates game rooms all over Texas. They are also, say officials of the state attorney general's office, guilty of running a gambling operation, and as such have been ordered to forfeit more than $1 million in assets.
The asset forfeiture comes as part of the global plea agreement worked out between the attorney general's office, under terms of which four top executives pled guilty to criminal charges in Tarrant County. The charges stemmed from May 2008 raids on game rooms operated by Aces Wired in Fort Worth and Arlington.
