DETROIT (AP) - Six former University of Toledo athletes and two Detroit-area businessmen have been charged in a 20-count federal indictment in what prosecutors describe as a point-shaving scheme.
The indictment filed in Detroit on Wednesday said between December 2004 and December 2006, 52-year-old Ghazi Manni of Sterling Heights and 76-year-old Mitchell Karam of Troy paid athletes to influence the final scores of football and basketball games on which the businessmen would bet.
The ex-players charged include Adam Cuomo, Keith Triplett, Anton Currie, Kashif Payne, Harvey McDougle Jr. and Quinton Broussard.
Manni and Karam were also charged along with a former jockey in a separate, 19-count indictment accusing them of fixing races at a Tampa, Fla., horse track and elsewhere.
