Former Viking Stu Voigt, business partner stand trial in fraud scheme


Stu Voigt lined up at tight end for the Minnesota Vikings for more than 10 years followed by a stint as a radio broadcaster. This week, Voigt and a business partner will stand trial on criminal charges in connection with his post-NFL business career.

Voigt and Jeffrey Gardner are charged in what federal prosecutors call a yearslong scheme to bilk investors who thought their money went toward real estate development that would fetch healthy annual returns.

Instead, Gardner is accused of using the money invested in his Hennessey Financial LLC to repay prior investors and other debts — including an alimony payment to his ex-wife, according to documents filed in court.
