Ex-Toledo player pleads guilty in gambling scheme

DETROIT (AP) — A former University of Toledo football player has pleaded guilty to a gambling charge as
part of a point-shaving scheme at the Ohio school.
Adam Cuomo says he regularly spoke to a Detroit-area gambler and supplied non-public information about
the Toledo team and its opponents.
He pleaded guilty Thursday in Detroit federal court to conspiring to influence sporting events between
2004 and 2006.
Cuomo’s plea agreement says he also introduced Toledo basketball players to the gambler to persuade them
to shave points during the 2003-04 and 2004-05 seasons.
Cuomo of Hagersville, Ontario, says he got $500 if the gambler won.
Six ex-Toledo football and basketball players were indicted in 2009 along with two Detroit-area
businessmen.
In a separate but related case, ex-Toledo basketball player Sammy Villegas pleaded guilty in 2008.
