Ex-NFLer Rison sentenced in child support case

PHOENIX – Former NFL receiver Andre Rison was sentenced on
Monday in
federal district court in Phoenix to five years’ probation
and more than $3,000
in restitution for not paying child support.

The Arizona
reports that the indictment accused
Rison of failing to pay more than $10,000 between August
2008 to August 2011.

The indictment says the due date for his payments had
passed about three years
ago. Court documents say his 13-year-old child lived in
Phoenix at the time the
payments were due.

A federal official says Rison also is expected to
continue monthly child
support payments of close to $2,350.

Rison’s 13-year career, whose longest stretch was with
the Atlanta Falcons in
the early 1990s, consisted of five Pro Bowl appearances.
