Former Michigan State basketball star Jay Vincent pleaded guilty Tuesday to two crimes linked to a $2 million Internet scam, a stunning fall for a homegrown sports hero who also played in the NBA.
Court filings show a plea bargain is in the works for ex-Michigan State basketball star and retired NBA player Jay Vincent, who appeared in court Tuesday on charges in a $2 million Internet scam.
Ex-NBA player and Michigan State star Jay Vincent has been indicted for an Internet employment scam that bilked about 20,000 jobseekers out of about $2 million, the U.S. Attorney's office said Thursday.
"Mr. Vincent wants to right the ship," Ford told The Associated Press. "He had a legitimate business. There were things that happened that just weren't appropriate and became the norm. Things got out of hand."
Defense lawyer Charles Ford said some prison time is likely, although he will contest the number of the victims and the value of the fraud.
