Back in March the news hit that 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Greg Raymer had been arrested stemming from a Wake Forest prostitution sting charge.
TMZ reported on Sunday, October 13th, 2013, that the charges have been dropped against Raymer. Raymer completed 75 hours of community service at a local non-profit and underwent a mental health assessment before the charges were dropped according to TMZ.
A Wake Forest Police Department spokesperson previously stated that Raymer was "one of six men who responded to an advertisement posted by undercover police on a website often used by prostitutes." The other men arrested in the sting according to wral.com were Kevin Scott Konarzewski, Barrett Lee Bennett, Christopher Burell Shella, Robert Hancock, and Gerald Barham.
Raymer’s lawyer, Wade M. Smith from Raleigh, North Carolina, released the following statement after the arrest:
"Mr. Raymer is very sorry for this lapse in judgment. He regrets deeply the pain he has caused his family, friends and fans. Mr. Raymer is grateful for the many expressions of support he has received."
