I agree to an extent.
From a PR viewpoint it certainly makes it hard to convince people of your innocence. Even if he was accused of doing it before and wasn't convicted or have been banned it becomes harder to convince people from a PR perspective with more and separate allegations.
Just because he has done it before doesn't or shouldn't mean it should be harder for him to get a fair investigation. Meaning they will need evidence of cheating for this instance in order to do anything (At least legally).
I do believe in innocent in till proven guilty (most of the time - some of the times?) but as a person reading the story I'm thinking "He cheated".
As for back ground checks I think most casinos do a pretty good job of working together and using technology to keep integrity in the games. Though I agree it is nearly impossible to stop them all especially before the fact.
