21. Robert Rozier, St. Louis Cardinals:
Rozier wasn’t remotely close to the level of star most others were on this list. But his crime(s) were heavily publicized nonetheless. After his NFL career was over, he joined black supremacist cult ‘The Brotherhood.’ As part of their initiation, prospective members had to murder a “white devil” and bring a body part to prove it.
Rozier later confessed to killing not one but seven people in this manner. He only served 10 years in prison when he agreed to testify against the cult. However, he was put in the slammer for 25 years on charges of check fraud after violating the no-tolerance policy of his release.
