Chmura, Fleming and Koch inducted into Packers Hall of Fame

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Former Green Bay tight end Mark Chmura has been inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame despite a career that was tarnished by a sexual assault allegation.

Chmura was a key cog on the Packers' two Super Bowl teams in the 1990s and a three-time Pro Bowl selection, but many best remember him for being accused of sexual assault by a 17-year-old girl in April 2000.

He was acquitted in February 2001 and retired from football four months later.

Chmura said he wasn't "too sure whether I was going to go in."

He was joined in the hall's 40th class by Glory Years tight end Marv Fleming and 1980s offensive tackle Greg Koch.

The hall is located at Lambeau Field, but operates as a nonprofit corporation independent from the team.
