Ex-South Dakota football player gets 5 years in scheme

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) A former University of South Dakota football player who recruited student-athletes, his girlfriend and others to defraud the IRS was sentenced Monday to more than five years in prison.

Alphonso "Rico" Valdez received the 61-month punishment from U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier along with an order to help some of the other defendants pay $421,000 in restitution. Valdez pleaded guilty in October to federal charges of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and aggravated identity theft.

"The bad decision I made has haunted me for about three years now," Valdez said. "I was raised with better morals."
