SANFORD, FL -- The alleged mastermind of Florida's Allied Veterans gambling scandal was sentenced in February to six years in prison on one count of racketeering for his role in an Internet sweepstakes operation. Kelly Mathis is the first person to go to trial, and remains free on bond pending an appeal filed after the sentencing. Nearly 60 people were arrested a year ago following a three-year investigation into Allied Veterans of the World, a Jacksonville-based charity group accused of collecting millions of dollars for itself and awarding little money to veterans. Trials for others involved are underway.
