A Virginia lawyer who used an Atlantic City casino to launder more than $250,000 in stolen money pleaded guilty Thursday, state Attorney General Zulima V. Farber announced Friday.

Robert Short, 38, of Arlington, Va., pleaded guilty to second-degree money laundering before Superior Court Judge Michael Connor, Farber said. The plea agreement calls for a four-year prison term.

On Feb. 21, 2003, Short wired $250,000 from a personal checking account to the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel. He arrived at the casino the next day, took a marker for $10,000 and lost about $1,000 at a roulette table, Farber said. He then took the remaining $240,000 from the casino.
