Arrested by FBI is never good. Must involve crossing state lines for something...

NY Post saying that he had millions in gambling losses, did the ponzi to make up for it.

Carton turned to the ticket scam in the middle of 2016 as a result of accruing “millions of dollars’ worth of gambling-related debts to casinos and other third parties,” according to court papers.

In a Sept. 7, 2016, email to Meli and another associate, Carton wrote that he was “around $3 M in the whole [sic]” and that he “risked and lost $700 of investor money” — referring to a $700,000 loss — and that he owed [$825,000] ASAP” to the person. He also indicated that he owed “a total of $500 on the 12th” to two casinos, referring to a $500,000 debt, the complaint detailed.

... his career is thankfully over.
Maybe not.
There's nothing you can do in broadcasting that will disqualify you from working except for kiddie Pron.
That will kill a career.
Otherwise if people think they can make $$ with him then he'll be back.

And wait until details of sports betting come out.
Could be some amazing material there.

Sometimes, people get what they deserve. And being in the investment business for 37 years, I never feel bad for someone that is caught after they bilk people out of their hard earned money.
I really don't feel bad it's just tough to see that for anybody.

He will pay for his crimes.
