Brett Favre’s ongoing situation in the Mississippi welfare case took a turn as the former NFL quarterback is now being accused of withholding text messages.
Things might be going from bad to worse after reports indicate that Favre failed to share certain text messages that could have been deemed important in the case.
According to AJ Perez of Front Office Sports, attorney’s for the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) dropped a 14-page filing on Brett Favre.
The claim that Favre, “‘failed to answer any of this discovery’ related to his text messages with others involved with the alleged scheme where around $8 million federal welfare funds were funneled to Favre and projects close to the Hall of Fame quarterback.”
In the filing, the MDHS claims, “despite being identified as the sender or recipient on the face of these text messages, Favre objected and claimed he could not verify many of these text messages’ authenticity.”
Additionally, accusations also state the former Green Bay Packers quarterback didn’t share text messages despite the MDHS “specifically requested messages with other defendants,” per AJ Perez.
For now, these are just accusations as Brett Favre is going through the legal process of this Mississippi welfare case.
All of this started when Brett Favre was accused of accepting $1.1 million in payment after not giving speeches he was originally hired to do. It’s turned into a giant legal mess with plenty of questions left unanswered.
It’s unclear how this will play out, but these new accusations make the whole case more interesting than before.
Especially considering how many text messages Favre has already shown.
So, how many more texts are there? Keep an eye out for more updates on this situation, as there is no telling when it will end.
