Fryar, mother ask judge to overturn guilty verdicts

Alleging a “miscarriage of justice,” attorneys for former NFL star Irving Fryar and his mother are urging a judge to  either overturn a jury’s verdicts convicting the two in a $1.2 million mortgage fraud or grant a new trial.

Motions filed by the defense in Superior Court in Mount Holly late last week say the convictions came despite a lack of evidence and because of prosecutorial misconduct.
