Retired lightweight contender Keely Thompson, and his wife Bianca Thompson, have been indicted on charges that they spent money from the city and private fund intended for their nonprofit youth program.

Keely Thompson, 47, and Bianca Thompson, 42, were indicted by a grand jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The indictment includes charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and related charges. It also includes a forfeiture allegation seeking all proceeds that can be traced to the scheme.

Keely Thomas is executive director of Keely's District Boxing and Youth Center, and his wife is the deputy director. According to the indictment, the organization received more than $1.5 million in government and private funding between 2004 and 2010.

The indictment alleges that the Thompsons used much of the money to pay for personal items and services, including more than $100,000 for gambling at an Atlantic City casino, a cruise, vehicle leases and furniture for their home.

During his pro career, Thompson fought Sharmba Mitchell, Enrique Sanchez, and briefly held the fringe IBC lightweight title.
