Jay Vincent: Former NBA Star Set to Go to Prison

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse University – President of Alarm, The Athlete Liberation Academic Reform Movement

Former NBA star and Michigan State player Jay Vincent pleaded guilty to two major felonies this week. Both involved his creation of a $2 million scam that was perpetrated on the Internet.
The two charges to which Vincent pleaded guilty were mail fraud and filing a false tax return. The charges were filed in federal court in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is set to appear in court again on Tuesday.
Vincent owes $110,000 in unpaid taxes, and may see time in prison. Prosecutors have not yet announced his likely sentence and it didn't appear in court papers. Vincent played with Magic Johnson on the 1979 Michigan State national championship team.
