4 plea deals, 2 fugitives and 1 upcoming trial in Capitol Hill speakeasy case

The wheels of justice continue to turn in the Capitol Hill speakeasy case. SeattleCrime has the update:

Two more men of the seven men charged with running underground gambling clubs on Capitol Hill, and in Ballard and Belltown have agreed to plea deals.

Prosecutors say Brady McGarry and Eric Sun pleaded to gross misdemeanor charges of working in a gambling establishment without a license (three counts for McGarry, two for Sun), which carries a maximum sentence of a year in jail.

The pleas bring the total of deals cut with the prosecutor in the speakeasy cases to four. Two more men have not responded to the court and are now considered fugitives. Artist DK Pan pleaded not guilty and currently faces trial in 2012. SeattleCrime is also reporting that, as part of his deal, McGarry has agreed to testify against other defendants in the case.


One thought on “4 plea deals, 2 fugitives and 1 upcoming trial in Capitol Hill speakeasy case

  1. Yes, wasting a year and millions of taxpayer dollars in an undercover sting that resulted in busting a few broke hipsters. Truly justice.
