AUSTIN, Texas (WGNO) – A former Saints Punter is set to spend more than seven years in federal prison.

Russell Erxleben was sentenced Monday for running a series of foreign trading scams that reaped $2 million over four years.

But this isn’t a first for the 57-year-old.  Back in 1999, he was sentenced to seven years for a scam that cost investors $36 million.
