TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Former NBA player Tate George’s sentencing hearing continued for a second day in federal court in New Jersey, but he hasn’t yet learned his fate on fraud charges.
Thursday was the second day of the sentencing hearing, and U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Matthew Reilly says it will be continued at a later date. He says the hearing will not resume Friday.
The former University of Connecticut star was convicted in 2013 on four counts of wire fraud in what prosecutors say was a real estate Ponzi scheme.
Each count carries a maximum 20-year sentence. But George likely will face far less time.
George is representing himself and claims the real estate ventures were legitimate and he didn’t mislead anybody.
George played for Milwaukee and New Jersey in the NBA.
