A former New York Giants player from the 1960s has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after admitting he defrauded investors out of millions of dollars.
Federal Judge Richard Sullivan told Clyde "Peter" Hall on Friday that Hall was cruel to his victims. He ordered Hall to forfeit $4.2 million and pay restitution of more than $1.9 million.
The 71-year-old Hall, who played one year with the Giants, had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Prosecutors say he accepted large deposits to help investors obtain loans from banks but failed to deliver on those promises.
Hall was drafted out of Marquette University as a quarterback in 1960 but was moved to end.
