Former Spartan Jay Vincent Pleads Guilty In Online Scam

Earlier we noted that former Michigan State Spartan basketball player Jay Vincent was expected to plead guilty for his role in an online scam that bilked jobseekers out of millions of dollars.

The Associated Press now reports that Vincent pleaded guilty today.

Former Michigan State and NBA basketball star Jay Vincent has pleaded guilty to fraud and tax charges related to a $2 million Internet scam.

Prosecutors say the 51-year-old Vincent and an associate defrauded 20,000 people by charging them to become certified home inspectors through a business called Foreclosure Bank Inspection Co. The government says no inspectors were hired and the business had no contracts with banks.

He entered the pleas Tuesday in federal court in Grand Rapids.
