Former Flyer Goalie facing possible prison time

Recommended Posts

According to the Czech Republic’s Isport.cz former Philadelphia Flyers’ goaltender Roman Cechmanek is facing up to 10 years in prison for fraud. The netminder has been facing these charges for seven years and was expected to have a hearing for his case earlier this week, but a key witness was missing. With this development Cechmanek’s case will continue in early December, according to the Czech news outlet.

Cechmanek’s legal issues stem from real estate contracts he signed nearly a decade ago that potentially led to him gaining illegal financial benefits.

From Isportz.cz:

‘In 2011-2014, Čechmánek was to commit fraud for more than CZK 15 million. “He entered into contracts and agreements with the intention of obtaining property benefits, even though the financial situation did not allow him to do so,” explained prosecutor Petr Matoušek, a former goalkeeper who has denied guilt from the outset. “I’ve never thought of robbing anyone,” he said in court.’

 

For those of us not up to date on the conversion rate from Czech koruna to the U.S. dollar, CZK 15 million is equivalent to $667,950 according to the internet. The former owner of the building was expected to appear as a witness in Zlin’s Regional Court two days ago but never showed, as Cechmanek continues to deny any wrongdoing.

 

Always wonder what ever happened to him ........

Well, a person's profession isn't inoculation against wrongdoing.   

 

Sad. I recall a three year stretch where his GAA, shutouts, and save percentage were on par or exceeded Brodeur's.
