State Investigating prison Raffle game at Cape Vincent Correctional Facility

State investigating prison raffle game at NY facility


Anyone suspected of running an unlicensed game of chance could be charged with a misdemeanor under Article 225 of state Penal Law. While there are several criminal charges that could apply, the most likely is promoting gambling in the second degree, charged when someone “knowingly advances or profits from unlawful gambling activity.”

William P. Reynolds, a spokesman for the Inspector General, has confirmed to the Times that an investigation was launched by the Albany office after a whistleblower at the medium-security state prison filed a complaint early last year.
