It was 20 years ago, however for Timothy Doheny the past has come back for the reunion, and he may well lose his company if he doesn’t win case he filed in Manhattan, nyc Supreme Court.
Timothy Doheny, who had been convicted for his part in a 1997 sports gambling ring that used Boston university students, is suing nyc for trying to shut down a company he co-owns, Rose Demolition and Carting.
The businessman co-owns company called Rose Demolition and Carting, that removes construction and demolition debris, when he filed documents to the business enterprise Integrity Commission (BIC) for renewal of its permit, a problem arose. Though people are softening their opinion of recreations betting, connections because of the illegal task and relations with organized crime are still treated seriously.
‘Were you arrested in 1997?’ a BIC worker asked him in an interview, according to papers. ‘My Jesus. Ended up being we arrested? I’m uncertain if I ended up being. There was clearly an incident in 1995 but I don’t know if I became technically ever arrested,’ he replied.
Turns out the worker currently knew the answer and a routine business license renewal was about to get a many more complicated.
Twenty years ago the then resident of Newton, Mass. was ensnared in a gambling band that involved students and football players at Boston College, as well as organized crime figures.
