Vince Wilfork’s son, D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork, pleaded guilty earlier this month to stealing Super Bowl rings and other prized possessions from the New England Patriots legend.
According to court documents, Holmes-Wilfork pleaded guilty to felony theft of property greater than or equal to $300,000 as part of a plea deal that he struck with prosecutors on April 20th.
D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork was arrested May 22 last year in Friendswood, Texas, and charged with theft of property greater than $300,000, the Galveston County Daily News reported Tuesday after the local district attorney’s office released a police complaint about the matter. Two Super Bowl rings, two AFC championship rings and a college football championship ring were among several items of jewelry that Vince Wilfork reported missing May 10, according to the complaint.
A Patriots fan who heard about Wilfork’s missing rings contacted Wilfork to inform him that someone had been offering Wilfork’s rings for sale in an online sports memorabilia community.
It turned out that the person offering them for sale had previously paid $62,000 to Wilfork’s son for the rings. The memorabilia dealer, who didn’t know that Wilfork’s son didn’t have permission to sell the rings, handed them over to police when informed they had been reported stolen.
Holmes-Wilfork received five years of deferred community supervision as part of the agreement, meaning he got a slap on the wrist as long as he stays out of trouble.
