DALLAS (AP) - Ex-Dallas Cowboy Eugene Lockhart Jr. could be locked up pending his trial on an alleged $20 million mortgage fraud scam.
U.S. Magistrate Jeff Kaplan could rule on the issue Wednesday.
The Dallas Morning News says a woman who has known Lockhart for some time testified Tuesday that he told her to lie to the FBI after their October public-intoxication arrest and say she did not know him.
Lockhart was charged with mortgage fraud in 2009 and released pending trial. He was detained in July for failing a court-ordered drug test. Another judge released Lockhart, but ordered him to report any further arrests. Lockhart allegedly did not tell federal authorities about last fall’s arrest.
Lockhart attorney Jay Ethington questioned whether his client was drunk and had encouraged the woman to lie.
