DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Michigan basketball star Rumeal Robinson has been sentenced to 6½ years in jail for financial fraud.

Prosecutors say Robinson schemed between 2004-05 to borrow more than $700,000 from a bank in Ankeny, Iowa, with the help of a loan officer. They say he claimed the money was for a business but that he actually bought a condominium, cars, furniture and invested in an energy company.

Robinson was also ordered to pay nearly $1.2 million in restitution.
