Ex-employee charged with stealing $22M from Jacksonville Jaguars for luxury shopping spree
A former employee of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team has been charged with stealing more than $22 million over a six-year period and using it to fund a luxury shopping spree, including jewelry, apparel, and luxury hotels. The FBI alleges that the scheme began in 2012 when the Jaguars hired a head of ticket sales and Fritz K. Jones, who is now 33, was assigned to lead the it. Investigators say that Jones altered financial documents to conceal where funds were going and diverted the funds to a number of his outside businesses. Jones is currently charged with 26 counts of wire fraud and is facing up to 20 years in prison on each count.
