A Year And A Day Behind Bars For Andrew Moss

Andrew Moss was supposed to be sentenced on June 13.  A little over four months later, he has received his punishment, which is much less than the maximum of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.  Instead, he received a one-year-and-one-day sentence and must pay $40,000 to the man who originally wanted to sponsor Scott Yancy III’s bid to join the PGA Tour.

One thing that we failed to mention when we covered this story in the past (Andrew Moss Of Onyx Sports Group Indicted/Andrew Moss, Criminal Minded), is that Moss is only 26-years-old, which goes to show you that the “young and inexperienced” excuse will not go far in federal court.  If you want to be in this profession, you better know the rules and abide by the laws.

The $40,000 seems to stem from the fact that Scott Yancy III received $10,000 from the endorser (whose name has been withheld from court documents) and Moss took $40,000.  The person who ends up suffering from Moss’ actions: Scott Yancy III.  It’s always the clients that suffer from an unscrupulous agent’s actions.

And as for Moss’ website…it’s under construction.  I assume it will be sitting that way for a while.

    I hate stories like this. I like when an unethical and criminal agent gets punished, but I hate that it gives the entire industry a bad name. Agents are deemed guilty by association.

  • By continuing to expose bad practices and enforcing punishment on those who run afoul of the law, there will be added incentive for sports agents to follow the rules.

  • Just curious..do you think the unethical practices by agents is diminishing at all?

  • No. Read my post that will be published in 8 minutes.
