— Former NFL player Adrian Peterson was indicted on Friday for accepting more than $1 million in gambling proceeds from a horse racing facility, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit.
Peterson is accused of using the proceeds to buy two properties, including a boat club, two golf clubs, two fight clubs and a gun club, the release said.
He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
The indictment is a result of a grand jury investigation into the alleged transactions between the defendants and the Detroit-based Yarichins.
The indictment is also related to the seizure of $400,000 in cash at the property that the Yariches had claimed to own.
The Yarics are the owners of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.
The Yaricyin owners are also charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering.
Petersons attorney, James Taylor, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
A judge has set a Feb. 13 preliminary hearing for the case.
