Convicted Felon, Former NBA Ref Tim Donaghy Lands Job With Gambling Site
Disgraced Official Off Probation, Begins New 'Phase In Life': Report
Former National Basketball Association referee Tim Donaghy, who in 2007 pleaded guilty to charges related to betting on games, was off probation as of Sunday and now works for a gambling information site, Sporting News reported.
Donaghy reportedly has struggled immensely to find a job after his release from jail and now has turned to pick-selling Dannybwins.com thanks to his probation expiring.
The website claims to have a “Win System” to help its customers beat the casinos and make money on games. Donaghy will provide the firm with expertise on basketball officiating.
“I’m moving on to another phase in my life and that is helping Danny [Biancullo] and his clients,” Donaghy told Sporting News.
The 45-year-old spent 13 seasons with the NBA, before the FBI and the league launched an investigation into his criminal activity. He spent about a year in jail.
Donaghy’s unlawful conduct, which has been attributed to him having a severe gambling addiction, was linked to organized crime.
According to CBS, he was once making $300,000 a year as a NBA official.
