Are Sweepstakes Machines Legal in Hawaii?
Legitimate business owners across the United States and in Hawaii operate perfectly legal sweepstakes machines. The machines do not breach gambling laws, as prizes are predetermined, and individuals do not have to pay to join.
Overenthusiastic local authorities in Hawaii, however, have insisted upon maliciously prosecuting small-business owners who operate sweepstakes machines. Law enforcement has seized the sweepstakes machines and prosecutors have charged the business owners with a laundry list of crimes, including racketeering and money laundering.
Judges in Hawaii have discarded criminal cases against the sweepstakes operators. On more than one occasion, judges have issued tough criticism of the prosecution, stating that tainted proof has been used and that witnesses had committed perjury.
The illegal seizure of personal property and malicious prosecution, we believe, is a travesty. Hence, we fiercely defend those who have been affected by this practice.
Police Seize Personal Property Illegally
Despite the judges’ rulings, local authorities make it very challenging for the sweepstakes operators to retrieve the machines seized by law enforcement. Consequently, livelihoods have been destroyed and lives have been shattered.
