The former manager of the KU ticket office is headed to prison for her role in a $2 million ticket scheme that illegally funneled thousands of tickets for Kansas University basketball and football games to brokers and others.
Former assistant athletics director Rodney Jones used his take from a $2 million ticket scalping conspiracy at the University of Kansas to give himself a luxurious lifestyle that would otherwise have been beyond his reach, prosecutors said Tuesday.
Another former Kansas Athletic Department employee pleaded guilty Thursday in federal district court for her role in the KU ticket scandal.
The director of ticket operations resigned Thursday morning from Kansas Athletics Inc., as a grand jury indicted her and four others for their roles in an alleged ticket scam prosecutors say cost the department up to $5 million during the past five years.
