Today marks one year since the bust on internet cafes -- that led to the resignation of Florida's lieutenant governor -- and the arrests of Jacksonville Sheriff's Officers. March 12, 2013 uncovered years of illegal gambling and racketeering -- involving Allied Veterans of the World. Fraternal Order of Police President Nelson Cuba and Vice President Robbie Freitas were the first to be arrested. Channel 4's Erica Rakow joins us LIVE from the Westside - with a look at where the case stands one year later. 3 3 CUBA AND FREITAS ARE JUST TWO OF 13 DEFENDANTS WHOSE CASES ARE STILL PENDING.MOST OF THEM HAVE PLEADED GUILTY AND AREN'T SERVING JAIL TIME.. THE EXCEPTION SO FAR-KELLY MATHIS, A JACKSONVILLE ATTORNEY WHO ALREADY WENT TO TRIAL AND WAS SENTENCED TO 6 YEARS IN PRISON. 3 00-1021-31IT WAS AN INVESTIGATION THAT UNCOVERED A 300-MILLION DOLLAR ILLEGAL GAMBLING OPERATION, ARRESTED 57 PEOPLE, CONVICTED A JACKSONVILLE ATTORNEY AND LED TO THE RESIGNATION OF FLORIDA'S LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR. A YEAR LATER, ONLY ONE PERSON HAS BEEN CONVICTED- JACKSONVILLE ATTORNEY KELLY MATHIS WHO WAS LABELED THE MASTERMIND OF THE GAMBLING OPERATION.MITCH STONE 4: 19 what the state argued at trial and what they continue to argue throughout the course of events, was that this was clearly illegal, was that there was no question in their minds, that it was illegal from the start and that it continued to be illegal MITCH STONE IS REPRESENTING MATHIS.. WHO IS AT HOME WHILE THEY APPEAL HIS CASE FOR SEVERAL REASONS..INCLUDING OTHER INTERNET CAFÉ'S OPERATING UNDER ADVICE FROM OTHER ATTORNEYS WHO WERE NEVER CITED. MEANWHILE, THE CASES AGAINST FORMER F-O-P OFFICERS NELSON CUBA AND ROBBIE FREITAS ARE STILL PENDING. THE TWO WERE LINKED TO FIVE ALLIED VETERANS AFFILIATES IN DUVAL AND NASSAU COUNTIES.THESE ARE IMAGES OF THE TWO OF THEM AT A BANK WITHDRAWING MONEY .. UP TO 9- THOUSAND DOLLARS AT TIMES. WHILE JSO INVESTIGATED TWO OF THEIR OWN, THEY FOUND THE SECRET SERVICE AND TWO OTHER SHERIFF'S WERE DONG THE SAME.. TOGETHER THEY UNCOVERED THE COMPLEX MONEY LAUNDERING SCHEME THAT BROUGHT IN 300 MILLION DOLLARS AND ONLY GAVE 2 PERCENT TO CHARITY.THE DEFENDANTS ATTORNEYS CONTINUE TO ANALYZE THE CASE AND FIGHT FOR THEIR CLIENTS.. INCLUDING MITCH STONE WHO STANDS BY THE FACT THAT ALTHOUGH ALREADY FOUND GUILTY OF 103 COUNTS BY A JURY, KELLY MATHIS WAS ONLY PROVIDING LEGAL ADVICE FOR AN OPERATION HE DIDN'T KNOW WAS ILLEGAL.28:17 "there was a reason kelly mathis came to the conclusions he came to and it was because he studied the law, he understood the law, he analyzed it. he did more than any government lawyer ever did in this type of case and he knew it and he was confident in his analysis and the judge wouldnt allow us to present that." IT WAS A YEAR AGO TODAY THAT J-S-O INVESTIGATORS ARRESTED FREITAS AT HIS HOME HERE ON THE WESTSIDE, AND CUBA AT A HOTEL IN SOUTH FLORIDA. SINCE THEN, AROUND 60 INTERNET CAFES AROUND JACKSONVILLE HAVE RE- OPENED.. LAWMAKERS AND SHERIFF'S STILL LOOKING INTO WHETHER THEY'RE OPERATING LEGALLY.
