Former Pro Bowl NFL wide receiver Irving Fryar and his mother were ordered to jointly pay $615,617 in restitution for their role in a mortgage scam.

Fryar and Allene McGhee, 74, are to make monthly payments of $200 and $300, respectively, according to a restitution agreement signed off today by Superior Court Judge Jeanne T. Covert at the Burlington County Courthouse in Mount Holly.

On Oct. 2, Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman announced that former Pro Bowl NFL wide receiver Irving Fryar was sentenced to state prison.

Fryar and his mother were convicted at trial in August on charges that they conspired to steal more than $1.2 million by having the mother fraudulently obtain six home equity loans on her home – five within a four-day period – and also falsely obtain a loan on the home where Fryar lives.

Fryar, 52, of Springfield, was sentenced to five years in state prison by Superior Court Judge Jeanne T. Covert in Burlington County. His mother, Allene McGhee, 74, of Willingboro, was sentenced to three years of probation.
