There are a number of factors that the Gambling Control Board considers when figuring out how long to suspend the permit.
They look at whether or not the lessor was notified in writing by the organization that illegal gambling would be taking place on the premises and in that letter make a request that the appropriate action be taken by the lessor.
They also look at if whether or not the organization or any of those working within it knew that the device or the game taking place at the site was illegal or had the capability to be used in an illegal manner. They question whether or not any of the individuals within the organization participated in the gambling and to what degree they cooperated with authorities.
If it is found that anyone within the organization participated in the gambling, the organization could have its license suspended or revoked.
To fight this and any subsequent offenses that could heard to harsher penalties, you must have a Minnesota gambling offenses attorney helping you navigate the process so that your business or organization can have the chance to survive after such a charge, whether there was illegal gambling occurring or not. There may be factors present that cast doubt on whether the act was, in fact, taking place.
