TRENTON, N.J. – The sentencing hearing for a former NBA player convicted of fraud continued in federal court in New Jersey, but he hasn't yet learned his fate.
Thursday was the second day of the hearing for Tate George and a U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman says it will not resume Friday, but will be continued at a later date.
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 the Milwaukee Bucks and the New Jersey Nets in the NBA.
