MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) - Former NFL player Irving Fryar and his mother are due in a New Jersey courtroom to faces 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, N.J. The former wide receiver played for four NFL teams between 1984 and 2000, including the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Authorities say McGhee falsely claimed she earned thousands a month as an event coordinator for Fryar's church.
Tuesday's arraignment will take place in Mount Holly.
