Ulmer Receives Probation
James Ulmer received two years probation from a Mount Holly State Superior Court judge on Friday morning, becoming the last defendant in the Operation Slapshot case to be sentenced:
James Ulmer, the final defendant in the gambling ring run by former Philadelphia Flyer Rick Tocchet and a former New Jersey State Police trooper, was sentenced in Superior Court this morning to two years’ probation. That was the same sentence given last week to Tocchet, who pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiracy and gambling charges.
While Tocchet and Harney were said to be the leaders of the ring, Ulmer only admitted to helping bring in bets. Ulmer reportedly allowed those placing bets the opportunity to deposit the money directly into his bank account.
