Casino case gambling addict referred to High Court

2 July 2010

EDINBURGH, Scotland -- A gambling addict has been referred to the High Court for sentencing as a judge decided his powers to sentence were "inadequate", the BBC reported.

The accused 37-year-old Anthony Demarco was convicted on 23 false loan counts totalling a $1.5 million fraud, the report said.

Demarco's father survived being shot in the head on account of his son's debts, the BBC recounted.

No date has yet been set for Demarco's High Court sentencing, the BBC noted.
