Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Cris Carter was sentenced to 600 hours of community service work and a $15,000 fine for crimes stemming from his dealings with sports agents before his college eligibility expired.

Carter, a former Ohio State University player who has been with the Eagles for two seasons, pleaded guilty in September to mail fraud and obstruction of justice after agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors investigating illegal payments from sports agents to college athletes.U.S. District Judge Brian Duff said Carter had committed serious crimes by lying to a federal grand jury about accepting money from agents.

Carter told a grand jury he took $5,000 from agents Norby Walters and Lloyd Bloom in May 1986, while he was a junior at Ohio State, but concealed the $5,000 he subsequently accepted from agent David Lueddeke in October of that year.
