Ex-NFL player's daughter guilty in pension fraud

DETROIT (AP) - The daughter of a former Chicago Bears player has pleaded guilty to fraud after collecting money from an NFL pension plan years after her father's death.

Constance Helwig-Langlois (HEL'-wig LANG'-loy) is the daughter of John Helwig, who played defense for the Bears in the 1950s. He died in 1994, but pension checks kept coming until fall of 2011.

The government says his widow told the NFL retirement plan that he was still alive, and when she died in 2007, their daughter kept the scheme going. The payments added up to more than $200,000 over 17 years.

Helwig-Langlois, who lives in the Detroit suburb of Waterford Township, pleaded guilty Thursday. Her attorney didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.

She's scheduled to be sentenced on May 2.
