LAS VEGAS (AP) The father of NBA rookie Shabazz Muhammad was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison and ordered to repay almost $1.7 million in restitution after pleading guilty in a Las Vegas mortgage fraud case.
Ronald Holmes apologized Thursday before Senior U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks sentenced him in Las Vegas to 37 months in prison and five years of supervised release.
Holmes is due to surrender May 30 to begin his sentence.
His defense attorney, Michael Lippman, says Holmes looks forward to putting the case behind him.
Holmes pleaded guilty in December to felony conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud. Prosecutors agreed to drop two bank fraud counts.
Holmes’ 21-year-old son played for UCLA before joining the Minnesota Timberwolves.
