WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Three conspirators in a ticket scalping scheme at the University of Kansas have been ordered to pay $2 million.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown granted the prosecution's request for the forfeiture judgment.

The three people who must pay are Charlette Blubaugh, who ran the ticket office; her husband, Thomas, a consultant for the ticket office; and former assistant athletics director Rodney Jones.

The development is not unexpected given that all three agreed as part of their plea deals to the forfeiture. The amount is owed jointly and individually by the co-conspirators.

A total of six people have pleaded guilty in the scheme. A seventh guilty plea is expected on Feb. 24.
