DeNaples Asks Board To Reinstate His Gaming License In Penn.
Louis DeNaples agreed in a plea deal with prosecutors that he would give up control of his Mount Airy Casino Resort in exchange for charges of perjury against him being dropped. Now, DeNaples is seeking to have his gaming license reinstated in Pennsylvania.
Lawyers for DeNaples have asked the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to reinstate his gaming license and return control of the casino resort back over to DeNaples. The lawyers filed the petition on Wednesday.
DeNaples had been accused of lying to the Gaming Board about possible ties to the mob during licensing hearings. The gaming license had been suspended pending the outcome of the criminal case, and now that the case is over, DeNaples lawyers believe the license should be reinstated.
As part of the deal with Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico, DeNaples is to hand control of Mount Airy over to his daughter, Lisa. She was the Chief Operating Officer for Mount Airy's.
In order for ownership to change hands, the move must be approved by the Gaming Control Board. They do not meet again until April 22nd, and there is no indication as to whether the petition and the change of ownership will be discussed at that meeting.
