Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre is under some additional fire in his Mississippi Welfare case as he is accused of withholding certain pertinent text messages.
According to FrontOfficeSports.com, Favre is believed to have failed to disclose messages that could have been crucial to the matter, with the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) filing a document said to be 14 pages long which accuses him of failing to cooperate with requests for text message evidence.
The department claims that, while Favre’s name appeared as sender and recipient in the messages, he challenged their authenticity and did not confirm their validity.
“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,” the filing reads.
The MDHS also accuses the former quarterback of refusing to share texts with other defendants in the case despite their requests.
Favre was initially accused of accepting the sum of $1.1 million for appearances he did not fulfill but it has since taken on several new angles which have only served to make matters a lot more complicated.
This latest bit adds yet another layer to the already complex case.
