Tobey McGuire, everyone's favorite Spider-Man has to appear in court over charges of being involved in an illegal gambling ring. This is something that has come to a shock to a lot of his fans. Where did he go wrong? Are these charges accurate and true? No one is going to know much until he goes through with the trial to find out more about these accusations and to see what sentence awaits him at the end once trial has ended.
The actor was named in a lawsuit last month for playing unlicensed poker with convicted fraudster Bradley Ruderman. Maguire's lawyer later denied the accusations on his behalf, insisting that the Spider-Man star had no idea that the gaming was illegal.
While he has admitted to having earned $187,000 (£116,600) in winnings from the games, he has claimed that he should not have to return his winnings as he suffered a loss at Ruderman's hands. Per documents filed in the US Bankruptcy Court in Los Angeles on Monday and obtained by E Online, Maguire and prosecutors have been given until November 30 to prepare their cases.
They must then appear at a trial scheduled for the week of January 30, 2012.
