Father of former UCLA basketball star faces federal bank fraud, conspiracy

REVIEW JOURNAL 9 Hours Ago

by Colton Lochhead

Ronald Holmes, father of former UCLA basketball star Shabazz Muhammad, was indicted Thursday on federal bank fraud and conspiracy charges.

Holmes’ address listed in the federal indictment matches one given by the family in a Dream Vision traveling basketball team program.

Muhammad and his younger brother, Rashad, both played for Dream Vision, an Amateur Athletic Union team.

The indictment states that Holmes and his partners obtained “mortgage loans by fraudulent means to buy houses,” from 2006 to 2009.

The U.S. attorney’s office is seeking to recover $2.5 million from Holmes. Shabazz, 20, played one year at UCLA before declaring for the NBA draft. UCLA recruited him while he played for Bishop Gorman High School.

According to the court documents, Holmes is being detained pending a detention hearing.
