Rumeal Robinson — who played six seasons in the NBA after a stellar college career at Michigan — was found guilty by a jury yesterday on 11 counts of fraud.
Robinson tried to sell his mother’s home without her knowledge, just part of the charges that included bank bribery, wire fraud, and making a false statement to a financial institution, according to the Associated Press.
Robinson worked with a bank insider — Brian Williams of Community State Bank in Iowa — to secure loans for a fictional business in 2004 and 2005, according to prosecutors. In total, more than $700,000 was loaned from a couple of banks.
Robinson spent six years in the NBA, the first two with Atlanta then he bounded around the league his last four seasons. He made $4.8 million in that time, but apparently liked living a fast-paced life that included strip clubs.
No sentencing date has been set.
