Men charged with casino cheating to go on trial
New London - Two New York men are going on trial on allegations they scammed Mohegan Sun out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in a scheme police say involved crooked game dealers and marked cards.
The trial of Queens residents Leonard Hu and Hung Leung is scheduled to begin today in New London Superior Court. They deny charges of felony casino cheating, conspiracy and larceny.
State police say Hu and Leung teamed with two dealers who marked the 7, 8 and 9 cards at mini-baccarat tables at Mohegan Sun in late 2010 and early 2011. The dealers, Norwich residents Jian Ng and Bong Louie, also were arrested and await trial. Troopers say Hu and Leung won more than $500,000 from the casino from October 2010 to February 2011.
