HEAD

    Sec. 1084. Transmission of wagering information; penalties

STATUTE

      (a) Whoever being engaged in the business of betting or wagering
    knowingly uses a wire communication facility for the transmission
    in interstate or foreign commerce of bets or wagers or information
    assisting in the placing of bets or wagers on any sporting event or
    contest, or for the transmission of a wire communication which
    entitles the recipient to receive money or credit as a result of
    bets or wagers, or for information assisting in the placing of bets
    or wagers, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more
    than two years, or both.
      (b) Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent the
    transmission in interstate or foreign commerce of information for
    use in news reporting of sporting events or contests, or for the
    transmission of information assisting in the placing of bets or
    wagers on a sporting event or contest from a State or foreign
    country where betting on that sporting event or contest is legal
    into a State or foreign country in which such betting is legal.
      (c) Nothing contained in this section shall create immunity from
    criminal prosecution under any laws of any State.
      (d) When any common carrier, subject to the jurisdiction of the
    Federal Communications Commission, is notified in writing by a
    Federal, State, or local law enforcement agency, acting within its
    jurisdiction, that any facility furnished by it is being used or
    will be used for the purpose of transmitting or receiving gambling
    information in interstate or foreign commerce in violation of
    Federal, State or local law, it shall discontinue or refuse, the
    leasing, furnishing, or maintaining of such facility, after
    reasonable notice to the subscriber, but no damages, penalty or
    forfeiture, civil or criminal, shall be found against any common
    carrier for any act done in compliance with any notice received
    from a law enforcement agency. Nothing in this section shall be
    deemed to prejudice the right of any person affected thereby to
    secure an appropriate determination, as otherwise provided by law,
    in a Federal court or in a State or local tribunal or agency, that
    such facility should not be discontinued or removed, or should be
    restored.
      (e) As used in this section, the term "State" means a State of
    the United States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of
    Puerto Rico, or a commonwealth, territory or possession of the
    United States.
