Not good news for Fryar…

Former Philadelphia Eagle Irving Fryar and his 74-year-old mother were sentenced Friday for their roles in a $1.2 million mortgage scheme involving a multitude of lending institutions.

Fryar, was sentenced to five years in prison after he was convicted of conspiracy and theft by fryarprofiledeception in connection with false wage information that he and his mother provided on mortgage applications submitted in rapid succession in late 2009 and early 2010.

His mother, Allene McGhee,, formerly of Willingboro, got three years’ probation.

Mark Fury, McGhee’s lawyer, said he was “very grateful for the judge’s careful and well-reasoned analysis” and pleased with the decision to give McGhee probation. He stated it was difficult for McGhee to see her son sentenced to prison.

A hearing will be held next month to determine restitution.  The prosecutors said the scheme had defrauded banks of more than $1 million, and said Fryar had received about $300,000 of that money. Covert urged prosecutors and the defense to come up with a settlement that is “realistic” and considers Fryar’s and McGhee’s “ability to pay.”
