Bryan Zuriff, a 44-year-old producer of the Showtime tv series "Ray Donovan", has pleaded guilty to his role in an illegal sports gambling ring, according to Bloomberg.com.
Zuriff could serve as many as five years in prison and was the first defendant to plead guilty in the case. He operated his own "illegal gambling enterprise" in L.A. and assisted in operations of gambling rings in New York.
An excerpt from the Bloomberg piece reads:
34 members of the network, allegedly including members of two Russian-American organized crime bands, have already been indicted.
