OKLAHOMA CITY -

An 84-page Federal Court document outlines the FBI's case against accused illegal gambling kingpin Teddy Mitchell. 

The government alleges Mitchell hosted high-stakes poker games at his Oklahoma City home for more than 20 years.  Investigators say Mitchell also ran an elaborate sports betting operation as well. 

FBI investigators say Mitchell tried to hide millions of dollars through real estate transactions involving his older sister, who is a real estate agent.

Mitchell's attorney, Scott Adams, says his client had a license to run poker games and is guilty of nothing criminal.

"I've had poker games at my house. I've had poker games at my neighbor's house. I've bet on sports. That doesn't mean it was illegal," Adams says.  "Just because the government says it is doesn't mean it is," Adams added. 

Teddy Mitchell's federal trial is scheduled to begin in April.
