Mr. [Stephen B. Paskind] has since acquired ownership of the Forty-Niner bingo hall, located on Church Street in Brooklyn Park. The Board of Appeals decision in July also denied Mr. Paskind an operating license for that business and another hall he owns, Glen Burnie Bingo, both of which are closed.
Prosecutors allege that Mr. [Donald John Angelini], Mr. King and Mr. Paskind met with two other men in September 1988 at a Guest Quarters Hotel south of Baltimore to "discuss the op eration of Bingo World and . . . of a competitor, Bingo Palace," and that Mr. Paskind met with Mr. King in Florida in September 1989 "to discuss the arson at Bingo Palace."
Others named but not charged in the indictment include Eli Crespi, an associate of Mr. Paskind in Florida alleged to have helped launder $100,000 in cash; Anthony Dimeglio and Phillip Cimmino, identified as participants in the Guest Quarters Hotel meeting; and Stephen R. Bronstein, a Maryland accountant who manages Bingo World and was said to have met with Mr. Angelini and Mr. King in the summer of 1988 to discuss its operations.
