OMAHA, Neb. -- Federal prosecutors who accused a financial adviser of running a Ponzi scheme say they don't believe the three NFL players who partnered with her did anything wrong.

An indictment charging Mary Wong of Omaha with stealing $3 million from eight victims was unsealed on Monday.


Demorrio Williams of the Kansas City Chiefs and twins Josh Bullocks of the Chicago Bears and Daniel Bullocks of the Detroit Lions were partners with Wong in Williams & Bullocks LLC. All three played at the University of Nebraska.

Jan Sharp of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Omaha said Tuesday there's no indication Wong's partners acted improperly.

Sharp declined to say whether Wong's partners were victims in the scheme, and court documents identify her victims only by initials.
