A Chicago man has pleaded not guilty in New York to charges in a federal crackdown on the three largest online poker websites in the United States.
Bradley Franzen is one of 11 people charged in the case. He was released Monday on $200,000 bail.
Outside court, defense attorney Sam Schmidt said he and his client were reviewing the indictment and had no immediate comment.
Franzen, who surrendered in New York, also has a home in Costa Rica.
The indictment alleges Franzen was among a group of highly paid "payment processors" who lied to banks about the nature of the financial transactions. The charges against him carry a potential penalty of 85 years in prison if he's convicted.
Other arrests in the case occurred Friday in Nevada and Utah.
