Famed sports gambler Billy Walters was among the 143 people to which outgoing President Donald Trump granted clemency in his final day in office.
Walters was among the 70 people who were commuted, meaning the crime isnt wiped from his record but his required time served is being reduced.
Walters was convicted in 2017 and sentenced to five years in prison and forced to pay back more than $40 million in ill-gotten gains for his role in an insider trading scheme involving milk-maker Dean Foods.
Walters moved to Nevada in 1980 after being convicted of bookmaking in Kentucky. He was part of a betting syndicate in the 1980s that used data and computer analysis to beat sportsbooks well ahead of their time.
