Man involved in tax scam with USD football players is sentenced



     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A man who ran a tax refund scam with several members of the USD football team has been sentenced.
 
     The U.S. attorney's office says 23-year-old Charlie Frank Adams, of Tampa, Fla., was sentenced to 4 1/2 years for conspiracy to defraud the US and aggravated identity theft.
 
     Adams and 10 others were indicted on those charges and Adams earlier pleaded guilty.
 
     He was also ordered to pay the IRS and ID theft victims nearly $422,000.
 
     Prosecutors say Adams used personal information of other people to file bogus income tax returns showing refunds due.
 
     Several of his co-defendants attended the University of South Dakota in Vermillion and are former members of the football team.
