There’s been another turn in the ongoing investigation into sports betting violations in Iowa as two athletes have now been charged with felony identity theft.
The new charges that have been levied are the most serious thus far. Denver Broncos defensive end and former Iowa State Cyclones player Eyioma Uwazurike and ISU wrestler Paniro Johnson have both been hit with Class D felony identity theft.
The punishment for this charge in Iowa carries a jail sentence of up to five years and a fine between $750-7,500. That’s on top of tampering with official records charges both are facing, which could result in up to two years behind bars.
