Kermit Washington is most remembered for punching Rudy Tomjanovich in the middle of a 1997 NBA game; he is back in the news because of the federal charges indicting him on charity fraud.
"Former NBA player Kermit Washington was indicted this week by a federal grand jury on charges he evaded taxes and defrauded donors to his charity, according to documents unsealed in federal court on Wednesday.
"Washington faces more than 40 years in prison if convicted of the four charges: corrupt interference with the internal revenue laws, conspiring to commit wire fraud, obstruction and aggravated identity theft. He also could be fined up to $1 million."--A.J. Perez, USA Today
