The federal grand jury indicted 49-year-old Joseph Nemeth, and four others on one each count of conspiracy to launder money. Nemeth also faces one count of transmitting wagering  information in interstate commerce.

Federal prosecutors say Nemeth made his money from bets on sporting events, including professional and college basketball and football games, and used offshore internet services to record bets his gamblers placed. They say the money laundering took place from 2004 until this year, with most all of it happening after 2008.

Nemeth is accused of telling gamblers, including one of his codefendants – 66-year-old Robert Johns of Canton -- to pay off losses to another of those co-defendants, 45-year-old  Rhonda Albaugh.  He and Albaugh allegedly opened credit card and bank accounts and invested in real estate and construction projects. Some of those projects were titled in the names of Helen Nemeth and Joseph Nemeth – the final two defendants, and both 75.
