A son of Patriots legend has just found out his fate this week.
D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork, son of Vince Wilfork, took a plea deal this week for felony theft of property over $300,000 and was sentenced by a Galveston County judge to five years’ probation and community service, according to court documents.
Holmes-Wilfork agreed to a plea deal after stealing his father’s Super Bowl and AFC Championship rings from his time with the New England Patriots, his 2001 national championship ring as a member of the Miami Hurricanes and other accessories.
According to TMZ, Holmes-Wilfork’s plea deal “essentially” means his conviction will go away as long as he meets all the conditions of his probation over the next five years.
Per TMZ Sports, Holmes-Wilfork was arrested on May 22 and charged with felony theft of property worth over $300,000.
“The outcome that emerged from the case was a result of much self reflection and healing on the defendant’s part and the willingness of his parents to forgive him and show him unconditional love with the sincere hope that he can be rehabilitated and go on to live a happy and productive life,” Holmes-Wilfork’s attorney, Mark Aronowitz, said in a statement released to John Wayne Ferguson of the Galveston County Daily News on Tuesday.
Wilfork was a first-round draft pick by the Patriots in 2004. The Patriots won two Super Bowl titles with Wilfork on the roster, including during his rookie campaign in 2004.
