Report: Charges Against Greg Raymer Stemming From Prostitution Sting Dropped
Poker Pro Arrested Back In March And Apparently Has Resolved Case
The prostitution-related charges against Greg Raymer in the state of North Carolina have been dropped, according to media reports over the weekend.
The poker pro was arrested back in March.
Raymer reportedly completed 75 hours of community service.
Police said that Raymer responded to an online advertisement posted by undercover police. He was arrested at a Wake Forest hotel along with five other men.
Raymer won the 2004 World Series of Poker main event for $5 million. Over his lengthy poker career he has cashed for around $7.5 million in tournaments.
He is from Connecticut.
The 49-year-old is married.
Raymer was allegedly soliciting a female prostitute, information which came after a local news outlet originally reported that it had been a “male prostitution sting.” It later corrected the story.
Since the scandal, Raymer has still been one of the most prominent faces at poker tour stops in the U.S. He appears to still be one of the game’s most well-liked pros.
