ACRON, Ohio (WJW) — Romeo Travis, a former high school basketball teammate of LeBron James, pleaded guilty Monday to tax fraud.

The 39-year-old Akron man pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States and one count of wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Travis, with the help of his sports agent and taxman, understated his income from overseas basketball contracts by cutting child support payments through the Stark County Child Support Enforcement Agency.

Travis was a member of the Fab Five with James in St. Vincent St. Mary Catholic High School in Akron. It was featured in the 2008 documentary More than a Game.

He also played for the University of Akron.
