Ex-NFLer Irving Fryar pleads not guilty to fraud
MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. - January 21, 2014 (WPVI) -- Former NFL player Irving Fryar and his mother have pleaded not guilty in a New Jersey court to charges that they conspired to steal more than $690,000 through a mortgage scam.
State prosecutors allege Allene McGhee submitted false information to obtain five loans on her home within a six-day period. The two were indicted on counts of conspiracy and theft by deception.
Fryar lives in Springfield, N.J., and is pastor of a church he founded. His mother lives in Willingboro. The former wide receiver played for four NFL teams between 1984 and 2000, including the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
At a hearing Tuesday in Mount Holly, a lawyer for McGhee said his client and her son were victims of a scam, not perpetrators.
