Prosecutors in Mississippi have just won another major victory with the recent plea agreement by John Davis (ex-Mississippi welfare director), who agreed to cooperate. It could be a step closer for them to charge NFL star Brett Favre.
Front Office Sports “Davis had previously been indicted for more than two dozen state and federal charges as part of the scheme. Nancy New, the head of a nonprofit used to funnel welfare funds, pleaded guilty to 13 felonies for her role in the fraud in April.”
Together with Miss. Gov. Phil Bryant was one of those officials that helped Favre get $5 million in welfare money to build a volleyball court at the University of Mississippi. This was the school his daughter played at the time.
Front Office Sports sources claim that Favre is on the “radar”of investigators for many months.
Favre may also face legal action for the statements he made to FBI. Front office Sports claims that Favre was questioned. “Were you ever in Tupelo, Mississippi.”
Favre claimed that he was present when Favre was a kid. Though, Matt Tympanick, a veteran federal criminal defense attorney and founder of Tympanick Law, seems to think the FBI had a good reason for asking Favre that question.
“FBI agents don’t ask questions they don’t know the answer to,” Tympanick explained. “You ask that because lying to a federal agent in federal matter is a felony. They had to have thought he’d been there in furtherance of a conspiracy otherwise they wouldn’t ask him that question.”
Favre and Gov. also exchange text messages. Bryant’s text messages have now been made publicly.
Favre appears to have been concerned about where and how media would discover the origin of money. Favre accepted the deal anyway.
Favre and the former governor. Phil Bryant and Favre have not been indicted for the alleged roles they played. Favre’s attorney Bud Holmes has repeatedly denied that Favre knew he was receiving money from welfare funds.
