Lilly pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of insurance fraud last month in California. He faced up to five years in prison but instead will pay a $2,500 fine, perform 250 hours of community service and serve two years of informal probation after pleading no-contest to a misdemeanor.
"I would like to apologize for the terrible error in judgment which has led to the present situation," Lilly said in a statement read by his attorney in court Friday. "My actions do not reflect the way I choose to live. I am very much determined to earn back a reputation of trust and transparency."
On March 19, Lilly sought an estimate to repair damage to his RV, which came to $4,600. On March 24, he purchased an insurance policy from Progressive and filed a claim for the damage on March 28.
Lilly, 39, played for six different MLB teams between 1999 and 2013. His final three-and-a-half seasons were spent with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He made $80,439,816 in his career, according to Baseball Reference.
