D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork pleaded guilty to theft of property over $300,000, according to court documents reported by the Galveston Daily News.

Holmes-Wilfork, the son of former Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, was arrested in 2021 for stealing valuable sports memorabilia from his father, including two Super Bowl rings that Wilfork won in New England.

Earlier in April, he pleaded guilty and received a deferred judgment. This means Holmes-Wilfork will face five years probation, with the promise that the conviction will be overturned if he avoids any violations during that time.

District Court Judge Jared Robinson also ordered that Wilfork’s stolen property be returned to him.

Beyond the Super Bowl rings, Holmes-Wilfork stole two AFC championship rings, a college football national championship ring (from Wilfork’s time at the University of Miami), and other jewelry.

According to Holmes-Wilfork’s attorney, who issued a statement to the Galveston Daily Newsthe Wilfork family wants to help D’Aundre.

“The outcome that emerged from the case was the result of great self-reflection and healing on the part of the defendant and the willingness of his parents to forgive him and show him unconditional love with the ‘sincere hope that he can be rehabilitated and continue to live a happy and productive life,’ attorney Mark Aronowitz said.
