April Trial Set in W.Va. Track Embezzlement Case

February 24, 2013

CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - An April trial is set for a Virginia woman accused of embezzling more than $1 million in horse racing funds from a West Virginia casino and racetrack.

A superseding indictment issued earlier this month charges 49-year-old Anita Ambler of Reva with 11 counts of mail fraud, 10 counts of wire fraud and four counts of transacting in criminal proceeds. Ambler originally was indicted in December 2011 on 42 total counts, including 21 mail fraud counts.

She is charged with embezzling the money from Mountaineer Race Track & Gaming Resort in Chester, W.Va. Her trial is scheduled for April 23.

The Culpeper Star-Exponent reports that Ambler pleaded not guilty to the superseding indictment last week in U.S. District Court in Wheeling, W.Va.
