Ex-D.C. police officer admits running dice games
A former District police officer has admitted in federal court that he ran an illegal gambling business at his Maryland home, according to court records.
Darrell Alphonso Carter, who was on the District force from 1990 through 2002, hosted dice games, charging players who participated and taking a cut from each pot, according to records filed in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.
Carter ran the games from at least January 2008 to September 2010, court papers say. He brought in around $2,000 or more on days when games were held.
During a search of Carter's Abell, Md. home authorities seized 19 dice, a ledger that was used to record information about the gambling and six firearms, court papers say. Authorities said the weapons were kept for protection because of the amount of cash being moved.
Carter on Wednesday pleaded guilty to conducting an illegal gambling business, court records show. His sentencing is set for May 24.
