D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork, son of former NFL star Vince Wilfork, has pleaded guilty to charges including stealing his father’s Super Bowl rings.
Last year, Holmes-Wilfork was arrested in Galveston, Texas for stealing the Super Bowl rings. Other valuables reported missing included Wilfork’s AFC championship rings and his Miami Hurricanes college football championship ring.
Additional personal jewelry, including necklaces and earrings, was missing.
According to ABC 13 in Houston, 24-year-old Holmes-Wilfork received community service and five years probation for pleading guilty to stealing more than $300,000 worth of valuables.
The elder Wilfork initially thought he had misplaced the rings, but investigators determined his son had sold them for $62,000. The rings have since been returned to Wilfork. Other items were allegedly pawned by his son for a total of $4,600.
Holmes-Wilfork was kicked off the University of Houston football team in 2016 after being arrested for drug possession.
His lawyer told the Galveston Daily News that he has made things right with his parents.
“The outcome that emerged from the case was the result of much self-reflection and healing on the part of the defendant and his parents’ willingness to forgive him and show him unconditional love with the sincere hope that he can be rehabilitated and move on happily and.” productive life,” Holmes-Wilfork’s attorney Mark Aronowitz told the outlet.
Wilfork, 40, played in the NFL from 2004 to 2016, spending his first 11 seasons with the Patriots and the last two with the Texans. His two Super Bowls with New England came in 2004-05 and 2014-15.
