Former 1st round pick and star Minnesota Vikings running back Michael Bennett has been sentenced to 5 years in prison.

According to The Mercury News

Bennett was arrested in 2015 after the parents of his then-girlfriend discovered a loan had been taken out against their home. Bennett had obtained a $225,000 loan by stealing personal information from the parents and then forging documents. He was on parole at the time for a 2012 conviction of wire fraud.

Bennett tallied 3703 yards and 13 rushing TDs over his career.
