A Cottonwood Heights man accused of running an illegal poker operation in his home has been sentenced to probation.

Nikolaos T. Stanworth, 35, pleaded guilty earlier this month to two misdemeanor counts of gambling promotion. Eight other charges, including felony counts of money laundering and pattern of unlawful activity, were dropped.

Stanworth was sentenced by 3rd District Judge Judith Atherton to a year of probation. He was also ordered to pay a $500 fine.

According to court documents, a confidential informant told investigators Stanworth was hosting poker games in his home on the 2900 block of East Fort Union Boulevard. The informant told police that the buy-in for the game was $500 and that Stanworth, as the house, took a $5 commission on each hand.
