Ex-UGA coach Donnan not guilty in investment case

ATHENS, Ga. — A jury has found former University of Georgia football coach Jim Donnan not guilty on all 41 charges against him related to an investment fraud scheme.

Donnan faced charges including conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. Prosecutors said the 69-year-old and Gregory Crabtree of Proctorville, Ohio, ran a fraudulent investment scheme from September 2007 to December 2010 through GLC Limited, a West Virginia-based company dealing in wholesale and closeout merchandise. Prosecutors say the pair promised high rates of return but paid investors with other investor money.

Prosecutors have said Donnan used his extensive personal and professional network to lure investors.

Crabtree pleaded guilty last month to a single conspiracy charge and faces up to five years in prison.
