In a far corner, five people sit on stools, entranced, their fingers pressing down over and over on what look like slot machines, triggering a harmony of whirling dings and jingles. Less Money … Less Crime? Richey, 39, is a mother of two with a knack for getting potential jurors to warm up to her during jury selection. Its arcades include bars and sit-down dining. A deputy constable at the hearing, also protecting her identity by speaking from another room, said that during a May 9, inspection of the game room she saw other violations.

Mike Hill scoffed at the idea that game rooms are mom-and-pop outfits, generating modest income for their owners. Attorneys Jayson Booth and Sara Richey make their living defending game room employees and owners charged with violating state gambling laws. Harris County game room owner Cliff Tanner disagrees. In an interview at their law office overlooking bustling U. I personally investigated several locations where there had been robberies, armed robberies.

Both officers said a security guard at the game room forced them to leave before they could put money in a machine.
