Freddie Mitchell has been sentenced to 37 months in prison for his role in a tax fraud scam, according to Philly.com.

Mitchell could have faced up to ten years for withholding millions of dollars in taxes from the government, but the former wide receiver accepted a plea deal that will put him behind bars for about three years.

The Eagles drafted Mitchell out of UCLA in the first round of the 2001 draft, but he racked up just 90 catches and five touchdowns in his four seasons there, before falling out of the league for good.

Interesting that he got more time for cheating the IRS, than Vick received for viciously killing helpless dogs for profit...

A pretty sick world...

Barry Soetoro wants his money...always. Freddie is likely one of those "big tax" democrats that wants other people to pay up but wants to keep his own cash for himself.

Hey Freddie, if you'd have been reasonably smart, you'd have voted for your freedom and away from Marxists. You'd have owed a lot less money to the government. But, if your going to vote for the big taxes, you gotta pay up those big taxes...

Typical representation of "their" kind. The phony reverend and his group of slugs will be screaming racial profiling and threatening to sue someone. Maybe barry soetoro will help his brotha.
