Drennan Gambling Case Ends With Deal - Thursday 18th of May 2006

CLEVELAND, Ohio As reported by the (Cleveland) Plain Dealer: "Radio host Bruce Drennan's gravelly voice was a barely audible whisper Tuesday when he pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to not paying taxes on his gambling winnings.

"The longtime broadcaster on Cleveland sports radio stations will probably serve five months in prison and five months of house arrest under a plea deal worked out with federal prosecutors.

"...Drennan admitted that from 2000 to 2004, he bet between $14,000 and $37,000 daily on baseball games. He pleaded guilty to two counts of filing false income tax returns, because he did not declare his winnings.

"He was put on leave from WKNR in 2004 after FBI and IRS agents raided his Strongsville home. Investigators believed Drennan ran a large bookmaking operation with two other men.

"Albert Giuliani, Drennan's lawyer, said his client never ran a bookmaking operation..."
