Amer-I-Can Cleveland is a registered nonprofit; Peacemakers Alliance is not.According to the information, Rucker solicited foundations, organizations and individuals to make donations and would routinely begin withdrawing money for his personal use after funds were deposited into the Amer-I-Can account. The withdrawals occurred from 2011 to 2015. Rucker used $65,000 in donations to pay off markers at Las Vegas and made $48,000 in ATM withdrawals at casinos in Las Vegas, Cleveland and Tampa, Florida, the information said.
