The Associate Press reports today that "Former New York Giants star Mark Ingram has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for bank fraud and money laundering. It's a third term behind bars for the one-time NFL standout."
"Ingram pleaded guilty in November 2005. His sentencing was delayed as he tried to revoke the plea, fired several attorneys and missed hearings."
According to PolitickerNJ the fraud and laundering charges included cashing counterfeit checks, some of which "were drawn on the Trenton Democratic Committee during the 2001 gubernatorial campaign, based on copies of checks used to pay election day workers."
Ingram's son, Mark Jr., is now a running back with Alabama.
