Jontay Porter To Receive Federal Criminal Charges in Sports Betting Scandal

Jul 5, 2024

Jontay Porter, the former Toronto Raptor who the NBA banned for life in April after an investigation into his sports betting habits, will face federal criminal charges, new court documents show.

Federal prosecutors linked Porter to a case of four men who have been charged with scheming with a player to make bets. So far, that player has only been referred to as “Player 1,” but the descriptions used line up with Porter’s activities. The criminal information sheet, which doesn’t have any charges for the former player or a court date, was filed Tuesday in Brooklyn.
