United States Attorney Williams J. Ihlenfeld II announced that Gene Protogiannis, 55, of Lovettesville, Va., entered a plea of guilty to wire fraud in federal court in Martinsburg.
Protogiannis admitted that he used his official government credit card to obtain cash advances at the Hollywood Casino in Charles Town, West Virginia. Officials say the total amount of cash withdrawn at the casino was $115,853.55.
Court officials say Protogiannis faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. They say the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and the criminal history of the defendant.
