Former WWE Developmental Talent Brett DiBiase, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase, has admitted his guilt in one of the biggest embezzlement schemes in the State of Mississippi, according to Mississippi Today reporter Anya Wolfe.

According to Wolfe, DiBiase pled guilty to making fraudulent statements and in doing so, the conspiracy charge has been dropped against him, while he has agreed to help the State in its remaining cases. DiBiase’s sentencing has been delayed, while he also presented $5,000 in restitution.

In February of this year, The New York Times reported that DiBiase was allegedly given funds to go to a drug treatment facility in Malibu that was earmarked for Mississippi’s welfare programs and that according to documents in the article, DiBiase was allegedly given the money as payment for drug abuse classes that he never taught.

An investigation was launched into the matter, with findings released in May 2020 which noted that $94 million of grant money had been questioned, meaning that auditors either saw clear misspending or could not verify that the money had been lawfully spent, with several examples given in their findings.
