Fred Ex and his hands are going to jail? Say it isn’t so? He was just on Millionaire Matchmaker (never trust reality show titles), but now he is going to be making license plates at the penitentiary?  The People’s Champ, is now going to be the Prison’s Champ? Cold world. Former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to his role in a tax-fraud scheme. Mitchell and two others filed false tax returns on behalf of another athlete, identified only with the initials “A.G.” The plan was devised to receive a larger refund from the IRS and was done without the other athlete’s knowledge. Mitchell’s role was to recruit athletes and the two others filed the returns while also charging for their services as tax preparers. The maximum sentence is 10 years in prison, but I doubt that Mitchell gets that much, but by pleading guilty, he will probably have to spend some time behind bars and face a hefty fine up to $250k. These tax schemes are not uncommon, but if you get caught, it becomes a Federal Case and ask Michael Vick what happens when the FEDS are involved. Knowing Mitchell, he will  find a way to profit off being in the spotlight again, even if it is for the wrong reasons.
