Former Hoosiers Player Todd Leary Arrested for Fraud


Todd Leary, a former Indiana Basketball player and current broadcaster, is arrested in connection with a multi-million dollar real-estate fraud.  The 39-year old Leary was booked into jail on Thursday night in Monroe County jail in Bloomington, IN.  However, the warrant for his arrest was served by Allen County.

Leary faces 17 class-B felony charges against him including conspiracy to misappropriate title insurance escrow funds by improperly transferring $1.3 million to a bank account he controlled. Leary’s mate Brian Evans cooperated with the police to unfold the fraudulent scheme. Court also documented that Leary once worked for Joseph Garretson, a title insurance broker, who pleaded guilty in a $2.3 million scheme.

So far it has not yet been determined if Leary is being represented by an attorney.

Leary was a star at Lawrence North and played for the Hoosiers in 1989-1994, including their 1992 NCAA Final Four team. His career statistics achieved 77 three point field goals that are at 11th place in the history of Hoosiers.  He presently serves as a color analyst for Indiana University’s radio broadcasts (but I guess not anymore!)

The news of Todd Leary has definitely shocked the basketball fans.
