PASCO — A Franklin County court administrator is being investigated for allegedly running an illegal National Football League betting pool.
The state Gambling Commission is looking into allegations that Kelly Martin ran the betting pool for several years, including 2011 and 2012.
The commission received an email complaint last month about the pool.
The Tri-City Herald reports that Franklin County Prosecutor Shawn Sant is waiting for the results of the state investigation before taking action. The gambling commission has told him the type of pool Martin allegedly was involved with is fairly common in workplaces.
The newspaper says the pool cost participants $115 to compete for the entire 2011 regular season and playoffs.
