Greg Raymer Charged With Attempted Sex Crime Against Nature In Carolina

Greg Raymer Charged With Attempted Sex Crime Against Nature In CarolinaThis week is proving to be quite a testing one for past World Series Of Poker champions. Recently, we learned that the 2007 WSOP Main Event winner Jerry Yang has burned his way through his $8.25 million winnings and is currently being forced to sell numerous assets by the IRS, including his winners bracelet.
Now, the 2004 WSOP Champion Greg “Fossilman “Raymer has found himself  in hot water after being arrested as part of an undercover prostitution sting by police in Wake Forest, North Carolina. The 48 year old poker pro lives in nearby Wakefield, N.C. with his wife, Cheryl, but apparently, the philandering Mr Raymer is not adverse to playing away from home having shown up at a North Carolina hotel expecting to meet a hooker he found on the website
Unfortunately for Greg Raymer the woman turned out to be an undercover cop and the rotund poker champ was promptly arrested on a misdemeanor prostitution charge, as well as attempted crime against nature (CAN). In the Bible Belt state, the CAN laws cover a range of sexual practices including homosexual acts, anal sex, bestiality, incest and necrophilia. However, these days the CAN law is only usually applied to acts involving oral sex (fellatio and cunnilingus) and anal intercourse.
Following his arrest, Mr Raymer was released on a $1,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on April 18th. Mr Raymer’s lawyer, Wade Smith, later issued a statement saying: “Mr. Raymer is very sorry for this lapse in judgement. He regrets deeply the pain he has caused his family, friends and fans. Mr. Raymer is grateful for the many expressions of support he has received.”
Nevertheless, others in the poker community, as well as some media sources, have been more inclined to mock the situation, and here are a selection of some of their choice comments:
NYDN: “Clearly, he wasn’t happy with his hand.” “Greg Raymer — aka the FossilMan — has been busted for trying to bury his bone.”
Bruce Gold8: “Looks like Raymer was trying for the nut flush.”
OooooNooo: “He was hoping to be all-in but busted instead.”
