WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear Las Vegas sports gambler William “Billy” Walters’ appeal of his 2017 insider trading conviction that landed him a five-year prison sentence in a case that also drew attention because of his ties to billionaire investor Carl Icahn and golfer Phil Mickelson.
In addition to his prison sentence, Walters was given a $10 million fine and ordered to forfeit about $25 million.
Walters tried to have his indictment thrown out, saying the case was prejudiced by leaks that prosecutors conceded likely violated criminal procedural rules. Walters suggested the leaks caused Davis to cooperate with the authorities and amounted to prosecutorial misconduct.
