COLUMBIA, S.C. – A former credit union president has been convicted in federal court on eight charges stemming from his involvement with a sports agent accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his clients. Andre Lewis, 41, faces up to 20 years on each of the charges when he comes up for sentencing in several weeks. His attorneys say they will appeal. A jury found Lewis guilty on Sept. 7 of one count of money laundering and seven counts of misapplying credit union funds. He was acquitted of nine counts of misapplying funds and another of lying to an examiner from the NCUA. Richland Teachers Council Federal Credit Union absorbed $694,000 in losses, prosecutors charged, and it has since been absorbed into Heritage Trust FCU. Lewis was accused of improperly lending money to Marion Darnell Jones, president of Summit Management Group in Columbia. Jones faces his own trial on federal charges soon. Some of the athletes involved include Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson of the Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins running back Stephen Davis and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter.
