Ex-adviser to boxing hall of famer Mike Tyson stole nearly $1 million from the boxer and other athletes.
For years, boxing legend Mike Tyson trusted Brian J. Ourand to help get his finances in order. In turn, Ourand rerouted nearly $1 million of those finances into his own account.
Ourand, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan and will return to the Washington court for sentencing on May 2.
Under the plea deal, Ourand agreed to pay back $1 million, including $546,168 he stole between 2006 and 2011 from Tyson; $265,124 from (Glen) Rice; $182,957 from a player identified in a separate federal securities probe as basketball star Dikembe Mutombo; and $8,141 from an unidentified fourth athlete, Assistant U.S. Attorney David Last of the District said. – The Washington Post
Under federal guidelines, Ourand is looking at 41 months in prison. Locking him in a room with Tyson for a few minutes might also even things out.
