Former Broncos and Giants receiver Arthur Marshall was sentenced to more than five years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to two counts of bank fraud.
Marshall will begin his federal prison sentence on August 30. He was also ordered to pay more than $3.6 million in restitution, although it is reportedly unlikely that he’ll be able to come up with the money.
“I didn’t intend for them to get hurt, but they did and that’s my fault,” Marshall said at the sentencing hearing, per the Augusta Chronicle. “I will do everything in my power to make this right. And I will.”
Marshall admitted he falsified information about personal finances, sale contracts and other documents submitted to obtain loans. His victims included banks that gave him loans he couldn’t re-pay as well as a family that paid him $100,000 for a home it never received, and a local American Legion post that paid him $91,000.
Marshall played for the Broncos in 1992 and 1993 and for the Giants from 1994 to 1996.
