Miscellaneous Information
On February 11, 1980, Jacques Hemerle past-posted a bet while playing a game of Roulette at the Bally Park Place Casino. He placed 8 chips worth $25 each which bet won the sum of $7,000. The winnings were claimed by Angelo Casali, a co-defendant in this matter and an associate of defendant Hemerle.

On August 5, 1980, Mr. Hemerle and Mr. Casali were indicted by a State Grand Jury for cheating and swindling and conspiracy to cheat and swindle at casino gambling. Subsequent thereto, Mr. Casali became a fugitive and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

On April 27, 1981, Mr. Hemerle pleaded guilty to Count 1 of Indictment SGJ 70-80-4 charging him with conspiracy to cheat and swindle at casino gambling. He was sentenced the same day and received a $500 fine from the Honorable Michael Conner, J.S.C. Count 2 charging him with cheating and swindling was dismissed pursuant to the plea agreement. As Mr. Hemerle is a French National, he received no probation.

The State Police investigation revealed that Mr. Hemerle had recently received questionable roulette payoffs on two prior occasions at Resorts International Casino. No action, however, was taken on these incidents due to a lack of evidence.
