Poker pro Bryan Micon is currently being accused of operating an unlicensed Internet gaming site by the state of Nevada. The alleged misconduct carries a possible prison term of up to 10 years, plus a five-figure fine. Nevada currently regulates two online poker sites within its borders.

Micon allegedly broke the law by running bitcoin-fueled Seals with Clubs, which was shut down in February. He wrote on the site dedicated to raising money for his legal defense: “I maintain that I have committed no wrongdoing.” Micon added that he has “legal representation in both Antigua and Nevada.” He has so far raised $3,530 in a week.

Micon is being represented by Las Vegas-based attorney David Chesnoff, who has represented well-known poker players Phil Ivey, Paul Phua and Dan Bilzerian in the past.

“Mr. Micon maintains his innocence and we’re looking forward to litigating on what appears to be a case of first impression,” Chesnoff told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We are going to advise our client that he’s been charged in Las Vegas and what his legal obligations are.”
