Four Winds Casino was hit with one of the biggest cash cage scams in recent times when on July 30, its employee took $700,000 out of the facility. Danika Young who had been working at Four Winds Hartford for 16 years was subsequently charged with embezzlement. According to prosecutors at that time, she faced about 20 years in prison under Michigan laws and was remanded in jail.
However, in a positive turn of events for Young, she has now been freed and will be home with her family for the upcoming holidays. This comes after prosecutors were reported to have dropped charges since they could not produce concrete evidence nailing the employee.
