N.Y. woman pleads guilty to defrauding W.Va. casino

Jan. 14, 2013 @ 10:13 AM

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A New York woman faces up to 10 years in prison for fraudulently obtaining cash from a casino in West Virginia.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Monday that 29-year-old-year-old Rebecca Hill of Jamaica, Queens, pleaded guilty to using a counterfeit access device at the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.

Ihlenfeld says Hill used a counterfeit credit card to obtain a cash advance at the casino in 2010.

Hill entered her plea recently in federal court in Martinsburg. The plea agreement requires her to pay $31,000 in restitution to the casino.

A sentencing date hasn’t been set.
