The Department of Justice has charged Ted DiBiase Jr., a former WWE superstar and the son of wrestling icon The Million Dollar Man, with a laundry list of crimes relating to a controversy involving NFL great player Brett Favre. DiBiase Jr. is the son of wrestling legend The Million Dollar Man. According to Ken Dilanian of NBC, DiBiase may spend a significant amount of time behind bars, including up to 20 years for each of the six accusations of wire fraud, up to 10 years for each of the two theft offences, and up to 4 years for each of the money laundering crimes.
So what exactly did DiBiase do to get himself into such a precarious situation? It appears that he was granted millions of dollars in federal money that were supposed to go towards assisting people in Mississippi with low incomes, but instead he used them for his own personal gain.

Instead, his businesses were awarded “sham contracts” in exchange for services that were either never planned to be rendered or were never rendered. According to the article, DiBiase put the money towards the purchase of a vehicle, a boat, and even a down payment on a house for himself using the funds.
It should be brought to your attention that DiBiase is not the only person implicated in this issue. The Mississippi Department of Human Services has also filed a lawsuit against his father, who is known as “The Million Dollar Man,” for his role in the case.
Brett Favre has made it clear that he did not commit any misconduct, despite the fact that certain texts suggest otherwise. The individual who represents him refuses to comment on the most recent events.
As a professional wrestler, DiBiase followed in his father’s footsteps by first signing with WWE in 2008 and then quitting in 2013. During his tenure with the company, he was a part of The Legacy faction and was present for a number of events that will live long in the memory.
This situation is undoubtedly a disaster, and it serves as a good reminder that it is essential to put monies to use in the manner in which they were originally intended. It’s a shame that DiBiase apparently opted to use people’s donations for his own benefit rather than helping those who really could have used the assistance. Let’s put our faith in the fact that justice will be done and that individuals whose lives have been upended by this scandal will get the help they so well need.
