Former Jaguars employee used embezzled funds on Tiger Woods putter and so much more, prosecutors say

Mar 8, 2024

The saga of the ex-Jacksonville Jaguars employee who pleaded guilty to embezzling $22 million from the team keeps getting wilder.

Last we left Amit Patel, the Jaguars' former financial planning and analysis manager, he had pleaded guilty to federal charges of wire fraud and illegal monetary transaction. The two counts add up to a maximum sentence of 30 years, but the plea deal will likely reduce that sentence. Prosecutors are reportedly recommending eight years.

Two questions that loom over Patel's sentencing is what he did with that money and what can be done to make the Jaguars whole. The Jaguars are certainly interested in those answers, given they recently pleaded with FanDuel to return $20 million.
