HORRY COUNTY, SC (MYHORRYNEWS.COM) - An Horry County man out on bond and facing more than 2,400 years in prison in a racketeering case tied to the former Gold Club is asking a federal judge for permission to remove his GPS monitoring device.

Vladimir Handl, 37, of Carolina Forest, remains free on $500,000 bond following his arrest in March.

Conditions of that bond require him to wear a GPS ankle bracelet. His attorneys filed a motion last week to have restriction removed.

A hearing has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Aug. 27 in a San Francisco, Calif. court.

Handl is one of nearly a dozen co-defendants facing money laundering and drug charges tied to the former Gold Club, a Myrtle Beach strip club that shut down last year.

In court filings, Handl’s attorneys said the GPS bracelet should be removed so he can find work as a tennis teaching professional. Handl is a former head tennis pro at DeBordieu Club in Georgetown, court records state.

“The [GPS] bracelet will significantly impact his ability to engage in this profession by interfering with his training and his ability to attract tennis students, to say nothing of his ability to compete unhampered in tournaments,” a motion filed Aug. 12 says.
