Olympic Sprinter Gets 46 Months In Prison

     WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CN) – Former world record-holding sprinter Tim Montgomery on Friday was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison for check fraud.

     Montgomery, charged with 10 others in April 2006, pleaded guilty a year ago to bank fraud and conspiracy: that he had “agreed with others to engage in a scheme to defraud numerous financial institutions by means of arranging for the deposit of counterfeit, altered checks in various accounts in an attempt to enrich (him)self and others.”
     Also convicted in the case were Olympic gold medalist Steve Riddick, Marion Jones-Thompson, and sports agent Charles Wells.
