The man who has been known for perhaps the most infamous punch in NBA history will spend the next six years in federal prison and pay $970,000 in restitution.
Kermit Washington, who played ten seasons in the NBA, plead guilty in November to falsifying a statement on a tax returns and aggravated identity theft. He used charity donations to finance vacations , shopping sprees and even cosmetic surgery for his girlfriend.
According to prosecutors on the case, Washington used his position as a National Basketball Players Association rep to refer players to attorney Ronald J. Mix, who then donated the funds, a sum of $155,000, to the Sixth Man Foundation.
In 2016, Mix entered a guilty plea for tax fraud for the illegal donation to Washington.
Washington admitted to using the aforementioned funds for personal expenses.
