Man Ordered To Pay Restitution For Bogus Tickets At Tahoe Casino

MINDEN (AP) - A South Lake Tahoe, Calif., man accused of selling
$25,000 worth of fraudulent tickets to shows at a Stateline resort
has been ordered to pay restitution and placed on five years probation.

20-year-old Christopher Jimenez, who pleaded guilty to felony theft, had worked in MontBleu's entertainment office.

Douglas County District Judge Dave Gamble said he agreed to probation because he wanted Jimenez to make restitution and to care for his daughter.

Jimenez was ordered Tuesday to pay $200 a month in restitution and to stay out of casinos during his five-year probation.

Jimenez also served a year after his arrest on an embezzlement charge in California.
