At the risk of our site bearing some resemblance to Business Insider: I haven’t had time to read the criminal indictment involving the federal raid today at Helly Nahmad gallery but I’m going to post it in full below.

There are several counts related to racketeering, extortion, wire fraud, “Illegal Sports Gambling Business,” gambling, “To Collect Extensions of Credit by Extortionate Means,” “Transmission of Sports Wagering Information,” money laundering, “Acceptance of Financial Instrument for Unlawful Internet” and “Sports Gambling,” with Mr. Nahmad named in relation to those last four charges.

As The Times has now reported, Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov a.k.a. Taiwanchik a.k.a. Alik is at the center of the investigation. I do recommend reading at least the aliases of all those charged today.
