Herbo, 25, appeared in Springfield court via Zoom from his Los Angeles home where he entered his not guilty plea on Tuesday, May 25.
He allegedly told a federal agent he had no relationship with a defendant in the identity theft case.
Prosecutors say Herbo, real name Herbert Wright III does, in fact, know the other defendant, Chicago promoter Antonio Strong.
Strong reportedly gave Herbo "valuable goods," including "private jet charters, luxury accommodations, and exotic car rentals."
Prosecutors say Herbo "knowingly and willfully made the following materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements and representations in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States."
Lying to the feds is a serious federal charge punishable by prison time and a stiff fine. He is set to go to court on the original identity theft charges in August.
