COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A former Cherokee County deputy pleaded guilty to seizing illegal poker machines and redistributing them for financial gain, attorney Bill Nettles announced on Wednesday.

Between 2010 and 2012, Michael Todd Parker, 37, seized a number of illegal poker machines from businesses, Nettles said.

He said Parker would then redistribute the same machines from which he personally benefited financially.

Parker was fired from the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office in 2012.

The charge has a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, $250,000 fine and three years supervised release, according to Nettles.
