The Enquirer reports:
Already sent to federal prison for her role in a multimillion dollar mortgage fraud scam, Jolie Neal now faces charges she stole from an amateur basketball team.
On Wednesday, a Hamilton County grand jury indicted Neal, 48, of Mason, for felony theft.
She is accused of stealing $28,000 from Cincinnati’s Finest Basketball Club, her son’s team where she was a parent volunteer.
Neal pleaded guilty last summer to fraud in federal court. Her boyfriend, former University of Cincinnati basketball player and TV commentator, Anthony Buford, also pleaded guilty in the scheme.
They were convicted of defrauding several lending institutions out of $2.8 million by obtaining nine loans on three Mason properties and spending the money on personal items instead of paying off the existing mortgages.
Neal and Buford each were sent to prison for 41 months last week in that scheme.
