JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Florida Bar announced Tuesday the suspension of Kelly Bernard Mathis effective December 18.

A jury found Mathis guilty of 103 of 104 counts October 11. The one count he was found not guilty of was conspiracy.

Mathis was convicted of one count of first degree felony racketeering, 51 counts of third degree felony illegal lottery and 51 misdemeanor counts of illegal slot machines. Mathis faces at least 30 years in prison for the racketeering charge.

Mathis was the first of 57 defendants to go on trial in the Allied Veterans of the World case "Operation Reveal the Deal," which led to the resignation of Florida's lieutenant governor and a ban on all Internet cafes in the state earlier this year.
