Chipco President Gets 10 Months

Back in March I reported on the president of Chipco, John Kendall. Chipco closed a couple of years ago, and most of us in the poker world thought it had to do with the end of the poker boom. That was probably a contributing factor. Another factor was that Mr. Kendall withheld payroll taxes, but didn’t forward them on to the state of Maine. And he got caught.

Mr. Kendall was sentenced on Friday to 3 1/2 years in prison, with all but ten months suspended. Mr. Kendall will remain free on bail while he appeals his conviction.
