A White Hall man, accused of making as many as six-thousand calls a month in taking sports bets from around the country, has pleaded guilty to running an illegal gambling business. Forty-two-year-old Billy Joe Hulse Junior entered the guilty plea in U-S District Court in Little Rock. A sentencing date has not been set. The maximum penalty on the gambling conviction is five years in prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine. Hulse is one of four defendants in the case, which also led to a misdemeanor state charge against the Jefferson County sheriff and a deputy. That charge was later dismissed.
