A History of Sports Champions With Rap Sheets

Dave Meggett

Sport: Football
Team(s): New York Giants
Champion: Super Bowl XXV (1991)
Offense(s): Criminal sexual conduct and burglary
Sentence: 30 years

During his only Super Bowl victory, runningback Dave Meggett did a little bit of everything for the Giants, who defeated the Bills, 20-19. Near the end of his career, however, Meggett's life headed down the wrong path, which included getting arrested in Toronto after allegedly assaulting an escort worker but the case ended with a hung jury in 2000. Then, 10 years later, Meggett was sentenced to 30 years on criminal sexual conduct and burglary charges stemming from a January 2009 encounter with a college student at her house in South Carolina.
