Another One Bites The Dust
Charles Taplin gets indicted for text-messaging college athletes.
Remember when Sports Agent, Charles Taplin, was arrested? You, probably don’t. He’s not the biggest name in the industry, and it happened several months ago [No Tolerance Policy]. The case should serve as a reminder that certain states are starting to seriously improve their regulations on Sports Agent conduct.
Anyway, as an update to Taplin’s initial arrest, he has just been indicted. And a violation of the state law involving sports agents includes a sentence of up to five years in prison and a fine of $1,000 to $10,000 [â€˜Runnerâ€™ indicted in sports agent case]. Taplin may also have to dish out some more money if civil remedies are pursued.
If you want to be an agent, make sure you read the rules and regulations and follow them. The possible consequences of violating such rules are pretty steep.
