A San Antonio couple pleaded no contest Monday to setting up a fake international investing firm that scammed a former professional football player and others out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Alan Keith Nelsen, 63, and Mary Alice Monteza, 68, were initially charged with securities fraud and three counts of theft.
As a result of identical plea agreements, prosecutors agreed to seek a sentence of no more than 18 years in prison for each defendant for one count of theft of more than $200,000. The first-degree felony is usually punishable by up to life in prison.
