ANADARKO — An extradition hearing has been delayed for an Oklahoma man indicted in Florida over an alleged illegal gambling ring.

Chase Burns is the owner of International Internet Technologies. He faces racketeering and conspiracy charges over several Internet cafes affiliated with Allied Veterans of the World.

Federal prosecutors allege the cafes are illegal casinos — and that those involved have been using the charity as a front for a $300 million gambling operation.

Burns was scheduled for an extradition hearing Friday, but court records show that's been delayed until April 26.

His attorney has said Burns is merely a software provider who sold an Internet service.

The case led to the resignation of Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who co-owned a public relations firm that did work for Allied Veterans.
