Helena-West Helena club owner Wayne Webb, who pleaded guilty in August to money-laundering, is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court in Little Rock today.

Webb faces four years’ probation and a $4,000 fine if U.S. District Judge D. Price Marshall Jr. accepts a plea agreement. Webb has admitted to earning about $90,000 from illegal gambling in his Queen of Clubs bar and restaurant.

Sounds like the good old boy deal being handed out. Make $90,000 and have to pay $4000 sounds like a deal. If I remember this club has had problems before. That area seems to have a lot of crap going on.

I got to agree with FarmBoy, that's a heck of a deal. The dude is $86K to the good.

No, the $4k is a fine, on top of being required to pay income tax plus penalties. The article could have included that part so the confusion is understandable.

A crook "admitted" to earning $90,000; that means he really made a whole heck of a lot more.

Dear Harley: Not arguing with you and not sure how you got all that out of my post. Simply pointing out that the full punishment, whether proper or not, was not reported. Calm down. Sincerely - Got2Kids

Wayne Webb sells liquor on sunday out the back door of his honky tonk and runs illegal gambling operations, his son deals drugs in the community and was sentenced in the delta blues drug bust. Nice bunch of good ol boys. Scumbags.
