It has been reported today that former Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver Irving Fryar has been found guilty of conning in a mortgage scam. As a result of the crime, the 52 year old faces up to 10 years in prison.
Instead of pleaing guilty to the charges in a three week trial, Fryar and his mother were then trialled for “conspiracy and theft by deception” only to be found guilty of both.
We don’t know a lot about the scheme but it basically saw Fryar apply for numerous loans in quick succession whilst his property would act as the “deposit”. He then provided false financial information on all of the applications, an overall operation which saw him bailed on Friday with a bail of $20,000.
McNabb’s recent DUI has already shed a bad light on former Eagles stars, the 1984 NFL Draftee is not helping matters. Fryar had 19 touchdowns in his three year career with the birds from years 1996-1998 and received for 3,077 yards. His opening two years with the birds saw him receive for over 1,000 yards in each.
