Steven Stotts, convicted of cheating blackjack at the Diamond Jocasino in Northwood Iowa was sentenced to five years in Federal Pound-Me-In-The-Ass Prison.

Stotts was caught on casino surveillance in November 2006 pinching and capping bets. Both pinching and capping are performed by sleight of hand, after the outcome of the hand has been determined. Capping is basically adding more chips to a bet on a winning hand, pinching is taking them away.
