Former Patriot Irving Fryar Indicted In New Jersey
" NEWARK, N.J. (AP/CBS) — Former New England Patriots wide receiver Irving Fryar and his mother were indicted by a New Jersey grand jury Wednesday on charges they conspired to steal more than $690,000 through a mortgage scam.

In announcing the indictment, prosecutors said Fryar and his mother, Allene McGhee, engaged in a “sophisticated mortgage fraud scam” by allegedly having McGhee submit 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.

The 51-year-old Fryar, of Springfield, N.J., is pastor of a church he founded and the head coach of the Robbinsville High School football team. His 72-year-old mother lives in Willingboro. The former wide receiver played for four NFL teams between 1984 and 2000, including the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
