A former University of South Dakota football player involved in a tax fraud scheme has pleaded guilty.
Christopher Lundy, 23, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated identity theft in federal court Monday morning.
Lundy is one of nearly a dozen people tied to a tax fraud ring that involved several USD students. The group stole social security numbers and birth dates and filed bogus tax documents. Members of the group would then collect the tax return checks. Authorities say about a half million dollars was paid out before the ring was discovered.
