LAUREL COUNTY – A local business owner who was arrested in February for allegedly allowing patrons to illegally gamble at his establishment was indicted Friday by a Laurel County grand jury.

James Adam Peters, 33, of McKee, was named in a four-count indictment for charges that allegedly occurred Feb. 11.

Count one of the indictment charges Peters with first-degree promoting gambling.

Count two of the indictment charges Peters with possession of gambling record.

Count three of the indictment charges Peters with possession of a gambling device.

Count four of the indictment charges Peters with first-degree persistent felony offender.

On the date listed in the indictment, complaints were made to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department concerning illegal gambling at Pappy’s Pool Room located off KY 490, which Peters is listed as the registered owner of. When deputies arrived at the business to investigate they allegedly found several people inside gambling and playing pool.

Deputies also allegedly found 11 gambling machines inside the business and a log that Peters reportedly kept detailing the activity on the machines, such as the amount of money placed in each and the amounts paid out.

Peters was arrested and jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center. He is currently out on bond.
