February 14, 2018

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita tennis coach has pleaded guilty to operating an illegal gambling business.

KAKE News reports Jack Oxler pleaded guilty Wednesday to operating an illegal poker gambling business and operating an illegal sports betting business. The U.S. attorney said in court documents that Oxler owned and managed the business, which grossed $2,000 in revenue every day.

Oxler formerly was a tennis coach at Newman University and two Wichita high schools, and was a tennis instructor at Genesis Health Clubs in Wichita until last year.

Oxler is the eighth person charged in the investigation. Two of others pleaded guilty earlier this year, and three former law enforcement officers have also been named as part of the investigation.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 2.
