Judge sentences former USD football player to 2 years in prison for role in tax fraud scheme


SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A former University of South Dakota football player has been sentenced to prison for his role in a tax fraud scheme.

KELO-TV reports ( that 23-year-old Christopher Lundy was sentenced Monday to the mandatory minimum sentence of two years. He pleaded guilty in August to aggravated identity theft.

Lundy told authorities he gathered the birthdates, names and Social Security numbers of six different people as part of the scheme orchestrated by several USD students more than two years ago.

U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier told Lundy during sentencing that he got tied up with the wrong crowd and has the potential to turn his life around.
