ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (WABC) -- An Albuquerque stockbroker who confessed to stealing from clients to support a gambling habit is being dealt an unusual hand.
Prosecutors are letting him play poker for his freedom.
In exchange for the plea, authorities are letting Samuel McMaster, Jr. stay out of prison if he can earn enough money playing in poker tournaments to repay his victims.

Its a lesson to be learned thing, obviously he won't be able to raise the money, and while he gets locked up, he'll 'hopefully' learn the damage of gambling, closely associating it with punishment (prison).
