A woman accused of stealing more than $1 million from former Saints receiver Robert Meachem was arrested Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

Meachem hired Tonya Lynn Adkism in 2010 to manage his finances. Instead, she faces charges of mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. If convicted of all charges, Adkism faces more than 300 years in prison.

An agent for Meachem declined comment to the Associated Press.

Meachem, a first-round pick in 2007, made $22.6 million in eight NFL seasons, according to Spotrac. He retired after the 2014 season.

Meachem briefly was jailed in Louisiana last year for failing to pay $388,000 in child support and alimony.

  1. that classic saints four piece. 12-Colston 19-Henderson 17-Meachem 16-Moore.

    None of them the greatest receiver but as a CORPS they were the greatest.

  2. Feel sorry for some of these guys. I mean the guys tossing $100 at a stripper no. But the players that thought they were doing the right thing and having their money managed only to find out they were ripped off sucks.

  3. When are they going to arrest Robert Meachem for stealing $15 million from the Chargers while he was impersonating a professional receiver?

    I don’t know he played pretty well before and after he went to the Chargers, you know when he had an actual HOF worthy QB throwing him the ball. Maybe they should arrest Rivers for not getting him the ball or that front office for giving him the $15mil in the first place.

  4. 300 years for stealing, but murderers and rapists get 5-20? Sometimes less…

    Meachem doesn’t fit this typical profile, but obviously the worst thing you can do in this country is steal from the rich…smh.
