Seneca Casino Director Charged With Felony Against Ex-Employee/Lover

Niagara Falls, New York– The Seneca Niagara Casino may have gotten a bad roll of the dice today.

Raymond Keith John, the director of tables games for the Seneca’s massive casino in Niagara Falls, has a warrant against him for felony charges of intimidation in Indiana.

John, a Native American, age 50, belongs to the Oneida tribe. He built the Seneca’s lucrative table games business from opening day in 2003 to the present.

John commands “the pits,” – where gamblers play against the house in games of chance, such as cards, roulette, craps, and baccarat. He ensures the casino takes in more than it loses.

John’s intimidation charges stem from a vicious war of charges and counter-charges with one of his former employees at the casino, Carrie Lynn Ann Kearns.

The Indiana warrant is outstanding.

John, who ranked four levels above Kearns, began a relationship with his employee, a dealer, that turned volatile.

Keith John and Carrie Kearns worked together at the Seneca Niagara Casino.

John got his licks in too. He got a restraining order, which removed Kearns from his house in Lewiston, where they lived together.

John, a 6’1″ black belt member of the Welland Ontario Martial Arts dojo, claimed Kearns, at 5’1″ and 100 pounds, punched him with a close fist, and she intimidated him.

On the other hand, Kearns claims John beat her unconscious on January 23, 2022.

Carrie Kearns’ description of the January 23 alleged beating.

She did not immediately file a police report, she said, but the lingering head trauma she suffered prompted her to get medical attention. Hospital records list her as a victim of assault.

Lewiston Police declined to press charges against the powerfully connected John, whose employers paid Lewiston police for protection services at the casino in the past and currently own the lucrative golf course in town.

Over the next few months, following his alleged assault on Kearns, John began making a series of charges against Kearns, alleging he violated the protective order by calling him on the phone.

From happy times to a brutal conclusion.

Carrie Johns lost her job and spent time in jail for calling Keith John on the telephone.

According to Kearns, when John threw her out of the house they lived in together, he refused to return her possessions.

Though Kearns called John merely seeking a return of her possessions, she says Lewiston Police hit her hard with felonies for each of half a dozen calls.

Former lovers turned adversaries, Carrie Keanrs and Keith John, during happier times.

During their turbulent relationship, John allegedly visited Kearns at her residence several times and invited her to see him, despite the restraining order.

Finally, Kearns moved to Indiana to work as a dealer at Horseshoe Indianapolis Casino. But she lost her job after John got Lewiston police to charge her with the felony contempt of court for calling him.

Returning from Indiana to Lewiston, New York court, Kearns was arrested and jailed for almost 60 days because she could not make the $50,000 bail.

Lewiston Town Judge Hugh Gee set bail at $50,000 for Carrie Lynn Ann Kearns for calling Raymond Keith John on the phone. Lewiston police decline to charge John for an alleged assault and rape of Kearns, who spend 40 days in Niagara County Correctional facility. 

According to the Madison County Indiana Prosecutor’s Office, John, despite a New York restraining order he sought to protect him from Kearns, allegedly sent Kearns a series of threatening texts while she was in Indiana.

According to Kearns, John threatened to do her grave bodily harm.

He now faces arrest if he enters Indiana, Michigan, Illinois or Ohio and may face extradition.

The Senecas follow strict protocols for the safety of their employees and the public. According to Kearns, John has dated several of his employees and is not only in danger of arrest but also of losing his high-paid position with the Senecas as director of table games.

Not to be outdone in this fight between ex-lovers, John recently filed another felony contempt of court charge against Kearns for calling him on the phone.

Lewiston Police arrested Kearns in court on February 7, and she spent the night in jail. Kearns claims that though she called John in the past and even met him at his request during the pendency of the restraining order, she did not call him this time.

Lewiston Police have not provided evidence that Kearns made the call. The Niagara County District Attorney’s Office should have provided discovery evidence to Kearns within the required 14 days discovery period that showed Kearns made any call to John, according to Kearns.

Lewiston Police appear to have only John’s word for Kearn’s alleged phone call. Kearns said she never called him.

She told the Reporter, “After he beat me unconscious on January 23, 2022, I gave up on the relationship. I loved him, yes. I hoped we could overcome our difficulties. But he almost killed me, and then when I went to Indiana to start a new life, he texted me and said he would find me and that I could not run. He would get me and harm me. Then he had me charged with communicating with him, a felony, so I lost my job.

“I did not want to press charges, but I was concerned. Indiana prosecutors saw this as potentially a real threat to my life and refused to drop the charges. It is understandable, since sometimes men who threaten to do grave bodily harm follow through on their threats, and Indiana would look reckless if they dropped the charges and he later did hurt me again, coming to Indiana as he threatened and find me.”

Meanwhile, Kearns faces a misdemeanor sentencing on March 21 for aggravated harassment and now a new felony contempt charge for an alleged phone call she says she never made, and police
inexplicably cannot produce any evidence the call was ever made.

John faces a felony 6 charge in Indiana, punishable by up to two and half years in prison, and the loss of a lucrative job, managing the table games of cards, roulette, craps, and baccarat.

A felony charge is only an allegation; a defendant is innocent until proven guilty.

The Reporter reached John by phone, and he declined to comment.
It is hard to say if John’s luck has not run out.

  • Pretty sure the sons father is not being intimate because I’m pretty sure he doesn’t like men with breasts.

  • Pretty sure her sons father is not being intimate with her as he has no interest in men with breasts.

  • Kieth Johnson is Native American?

    Keith Johnson is as Native American as an Indian on the show “F Troop”.
    My Great Grandfather was 100% German and everyone else was something else; should I run around claiming to be a 100% German?
    It’s absurd giving a white guy with blue eyes a casino!!!

    Please be as advised the following clip will be offensive if you lack a sense of humor or are a woke pussy:

    F Troop Show:

    Please Note:
    The Indian Chief on F Troop was a Sicilian. The actor is most famous for his Indian roles. Frank maybe related to this man. Most Sicilians are 3rd cousins….

    ….Frank and my wife are probably related. Sicily is like Japan and Haiti everyone on those islands look the same(inbreeding.)

  • Keep trying to post, but it won’t allow me! What a rag of an online *fake news* source!

    • That’s because this article was being written by Carrie‘s attorney that she’s getting free representation from which is illegal to do snd against the law

        • With the help of her attorney nick D’Angelo who she said was going to get the news out about this situation for her . She actually said Nick was going to write an article for her and then it happened . Nicks her attorney and was the managing editor and your close friend, why else would there be an article written or how else would Carrie of known you or contacted you to write this ? She wouldn’t have . You can say he didn’t write the article but you can’t deny that he’s your close friend still

          • I wrote the article. I know Nick. He worked with me for some time. He doesn’t work for me now. He has been accused of sex crimes. He has not been convicted so in a world of due process he is innocent unless he is proven guilty.
            All reporters learn of stories from sources or documents. Nick contacted me and told me that his client was being abused. and shared public documents. He represents Carrie. I soooe to Carrie and tried to reach Keith who did not want to talk.

  • Carrie claims to be on a “Business Trip” in Florida. Exactly what would that entail for an out of work waitress/bartender? Surprisingly, all her Florida posts with pictures have been removed! I really hope she is not at a “Worlds Oldest Profession” convention, as has been mentioned a time or two.

  • The narcissists have
    Flying Monkeys To Harass
    You As Well
    Narcissists use other people to abuse you as well.
    These are people who support the narcissist blindly. They are called flying monkeys. They could be the golden children of narcissistic parents, narcissist’s friends and family and anyone who supports the narcissists misbehavior. The narcissist will do things like play the victim and martyr. And the flying monkeys will spread the rumors about how awful you are treating the narcissist. The flying monkeys will also bully you and get you to do what the narcissists wants you to do. Narcissists are very good at manipulating and getting people to harass you and turn people against you. So you are not only getting beaten down by the narcissist but you are beat down by all the narcissists flying monkeys as well.
    -Maria Consiglio

  • She claims to be on a “business” trip. Exactly what kind of “business trip” does an out of work waitress/ bartender attend?

  • “John, a 6’1″ black belt member of the Welland Ontario Martial Arts dojo, claimed Kearns, at 5’1″ and 100 pounds, punched him with a close fist, and she intimidated him.”

    You do realize that even an emaciated stubby crackhead is capable of harassment, abuse, and firing a gun that can kill a 6 foot 1 man, don’t you?

  • This woman is a compulsive liar, a complete fraud & will literally manipulate any situation to make herself look like a victim. She belongs in a psych ward. She is truly screwed up in the head! She screws any man who’s willing to give her $. For someone who’s known her personally for a very long time I can tell you this with complete confidence! She blames this man for loosing jobs because she keeps going to jail because SHE keeps contacting him?? By phone AND email. I’m sorry but no REAL victim of abuse or rape would bother to reach out to any man who done such things to them! She CLAIMS she’s a “victim” but continues to wear jewelry this man gave her?? Why would a REAL victim want ANY reminder of the hurt or harm caused by such an individual!? REAL victims do not display the type of behavior as this woman does. This woman needs MENTAL HELP. And anyone who truly KNOWS her KNOWS this!

  • Keith I can tell you tuck your dick between your butt cheeks. Usually dogs tuck tail. Why no comment?Your silence says it all.

  • Word on the street is shes in in Florida now screwing around with the guy that wrote this article. She’s worth investigating for sure

  • Re Kearn’s Bail:

    A 50k bail for the crime the crime , Carrie Keanrs is accused of is ridiculously high.

    Can Le’Gal please comment!
    Thank you!

  • Biden School in the Communist State of Maine circulates Gay Porn book to eleven year old boy!
    Video: 11 Year Old Confronts Officials By Reading Shocking Gay Porn Book Found In School Library

    It’s another day, and there is another case of graphic gay pornography being found inside a school library, but this time it isn’t one of the parents exposing it, rather one of the school children read aloud extracts to shocked board officials.

    11 year old Knox Zajac of Maine read to the board of Windham Raymond School District from a book called “Nick and Charlie” written by Alice Oseman.

    “This book was on the stand. I would like to read you a page,” Zajac told the squirming officials.

    The boy then read “‘My back over my hips. I asked if he should take his clothes off. He was saying yes before I finished my sentence. He’s pulling off my T-shirt, laughing when I can’t undo his shirt buttons. He’s undoing my belt. I’m reaching into his bedside drawer for a condom.’”

    Zajac noted how he was able to check the book out of the library with no issues, stating “When I rented it out and showed my dad it, the librarian asked if I wanted more and if I wanted a graphic novel version.”


  • Nothing more than a hit piece. One sided story and pictures coming from a mentally ill female with huge history of the same actions from various men.. do your research better!

    • I asked Keith John to comment. He declined. It is easy to cast aspersions on this woman. But do you have some evidence?

      • What could he possibly say that wouldn’t get twisted up? He’s the better person for not commenting. She’s a lunatic. It’s known. Seriously, you ruin a good man for this psychos smut lies.

      • Why don’t you request to speak with her aunt? The ex boyfriends, the past roommate who she called the cops on all three and more for false allegations and even has the family pay her to leave? Why not do real journalism and not slander a man by a one sided story using photos from the crazy women’s Facebook page? Look into her drinking, coke and pill addiction? Or even how she claims to be taking a plea with the courts of being mentally unstable?

  • I worked at the casino for 15 years and can tell you this woman is crazy
    And would do anything to ruin someone’s career because of a lost relationship.

  • Before you ruin a man’s reputation do your homework, look into the so called victim. She was on the boys wrestling team and she will and has on many occasions physically attack when she doesn’t get her way. I would think you could get some further information from the Hamburg town court

  • Why do women date abusive men? Like, do they have some fetish for getting an ass-whooping? I just don’t understand it. Well, hopefully this guy will get ass-raped in prison. That’ll teach him a lesson.
