Ca­sino cheat gets com­mu­nity con­trol


A Detroit man found guilty of cheat­ing at the Hol­ly­wood Ca­sino Toledo was sen­tenced to com­mu­nity con­trol, in­clud­ing an or­der not to en­ter the ca­sino.

Toy­ree Haw­thorne, 35, was sen­tenced in Lu­cas County Com­mon Pleas Court Wed­nes­day to three years of com­mu­nity con­trol and or­dered to pay $430 in res­ti­tu­tion. If he fails any con­di­tion of the or­der, he could face up to one year in prison, Judge Linda Jen­nings said.

Au­thor­i­ties said gam­ing of­fi­cials wit­nessed Haw­thorne cheat­ing while play­ing craps at the ca­sino June 24. A co-de­fen­dant, Cor­dero Young, who was a dealer at the ca­sino, has a Nov. 26 trial date.
