The Daily News reports Douglas Booth was sentenced Wednesday in Bowling Green federal court after reaching a plea agreement on charges including failing to file tax returns and money laundering. 

Booth, 50, controlled websites hosted in Costa Rica on which illegal gambling on sporting events took place, according to court filings. 

Booth’s plea agreement said he received about $2.3 million from his gambling operation that he laundered through banks, real estate property purchases and loan payments. 

Attorney Harris Pepper has admitted taking part in the money laundering conspiracy, receiving about $200,000 from Booth in cash and relief from gambling debts. 

Pepper was fined and put on probation for five years at his sentencing earlier this month.
