DaveCo Liquor Store
The owner, Hani D. "Henry" Sawaged, pleaded guilty to a felony racketeering charge and will never be allowed to run a liquor store in Colorado again. He was sentenced to two years' probation and ordered to pay $1.31 million in restitution. His brothers, Ghassan D. Sawaged and Bassam D. Sawaged, pleaded guilty to theft and failure to file a tax return. They served a one-year deferred sentence and were ordered to jointly pay $200,000 in restitution. Other charges against Hani Sawaged—including theft, computer crime and tax evasion—were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea to the most serious charge.
