Former Giants, Dolphins receiver indicted

October 5, 2004
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Former NFL receiver Mark Ingram was accused of laundering drug money, dealing in stolen cars and cashing counterfeit checks, the latest legal trouble for a player who helped the New York Giants win the 1991 Super Bowl.

In a federal indictment made public in Fort Lauderdale, authorities say Ingram cashed more than $300,000 in phony checks and laundered another $200,000. He was also accused of laundering drug money and of committing other crimes in a criminal complaint unsealed Monday in New York.

The indictment accuses Ingram, 39, of conspiracy, bank fraud and money laundering, charges that could send him to federal prison for up to 30 years.

Ingram has already served a six-month federal sentence for possessing counterfeit bills. He was being held at the federal detention center in Brooklyn for allegedly violating terms of his release on an earlier charge.

His alleged criminal activity first came to light three years ago in Miami when he was arrested in a stolen car. He's accused of selling four stolen cars to undercover agents near John F. Kennedy International Airport, and meeting with agents to discuss laundering drug money in Florida.

A first-round draft pick by the Giants in 1987, Ingram also played for the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles. In 1994 he tied a Dolphins record with four touchdown receptions in a game, all on passes from Dan Marino. He retired after the 1996 season
