Craig Carton quickly earned attention with the world of mixed martial arts for his position as the host of Spike’s MMA Uncensored Live. Now, however, Carton is potential facing massive jail time on fraud charges.
As reported by the New York Post, Carton has been convicted on three different fraud charges, including securities fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud.
Carton will return to be sentenced on Feb. 27, 2019. The radio host may face upwards of 45 years in prison for the charges.
“As a unanimous Manhattan jury has found, Carton was all talk,” Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said. “Carton fabricated contracts for blocks of tickets and spent the almost $7 million he collected from investors on gambling and personal expenses.”
