Two Convicted In KU Ticket Scheme Report To Prison

Two of five people convicted in a $2 million ticket scalping conspiracy at the University of Kansas are in prison.

Federal officials say former assistant athletic director Rodney Jones is serving his 46-month sentence at a prison camp in El Reno, Okla. And Kassie Liebsch, a former director of ticket operations, is serving her 37-month sentence at a minimum-security prison camp in Greenville, Ill.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that officials have not determined yet where former associate athletic director for tickets Charlette Blubaugh and her husband, Thomas, a former consultant for Kansas Athletics, will serve their sentences. Former associate athletic director Ben Kirtland will be sentenced next Thursday.

All five pleaded guilty in a scheme to steal thousands of football and basketball tickets and resell them for personal profit.
