Former NBA Player Facing Nevada Charges for Debt
Antoine Walker's gambling debts have led to felony charges in the Silver State.
A former star in the NBA has been ordered to face trial in Nevada for felony
charges tied to gambling debts.
The Associated Press said that Antoine Walker, who made his name in the
NBA with the Boston Celtics, is facing an accusation that he hasn't
paid nearly $1 million in gambling debts to three casinos in Nevada. The
law in that state treats such debts as bad checks, which means criminal
charges can be filed.
However, the news organization noted that Bernie Zadrowski, leader of
the bad check unit for the Clark County district attorney's office,
said that Walker
filing bankruptcy in Florida has led to making the Nevada case more complicated.
"Walker's bankruptcy filing claims $12.7 million in liabilities
and $4.3 million in assets, including the 2006 NBA championship ring he
won with the Miami Heat," the AP reported.
When filing bankruptcy, consumers can opt for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13
protections. However, rules from the government require a means test to
determine which type people can actually qualify for.
