METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints assistant defensive line coach Travis Jones has pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges in an alleged real estate scam involving more than 40 people in northeastern Texas.
A spokeswoman with the U.S. Attorney's office in Texas' Eastern District confirmed Wednesday that Jones entered a plea of conspiracy to commit mail fraud last week. Court records show Jones also signed a factual statement admitting his role in the alleged scam, which netted him about $86,000.
