Jacob Dyson Nickels, the son of Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, has agreed to plead guilty to his involvement in a casino-cheating ring accused of stealing millions of dollars by bribing dealers in seven states, The Associated Press reported.
Nickels, 25, was a pit boss at the Nooksack Indian Tribe's Nooksack River Casino in Whatcom County in the summer of 2005 when he accepted $5,000 to introduce one of the ring's alleged conspirators to crooked dealers, according to an indictment unsealed in May.
He was charged with one count of conspiracy and four counts of theft of funds from a gaming establishment on Indian lands, and was scheduled to enter a guilty plea before a U.S. magistrate judge in Seattle on Thursday.
