Judge Sets New Court Date for Quinton Carter in Felony Case

A judge agreed Thursday to postpone action in a felony case alleging that Former Sooner and current Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter added $5 to craps bets after the dice already rolled at a southern Nevada casino.

Carter didn't appear in court while Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Christopher Lee gave defense attorney Andrew Leavitt until Monday to try to settle the case with prosecutors.

"We're trying to work out a resolution," Leavitt said later. "I think everyone is in agreement that he was confused and wasn't trying to cheat anyone."

Carter was a beginning player, and didn't know all the rules of the dice game, Leavitt said.

Carter, 24, faces three charges of fraudulent act in a gaming establishment that each carry a possible sentence of up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Security officials alleged that he was videotaped adding $5 chips to three bets late March 9 at the Texas Station casino in North Las Vegas. (NFL.com)
