WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge is refusing to throw out the sentence of a former University of Kansas assistant athletics director convicted in a $2 million ticket scalping conspiracy.
U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Wednesday agreed with prosecutors that Rodney Jones had filed his petition too late.
Belot denied Jones' request without holding a hearing.
Jones is serving a 46-month federal prison sentence in Oklahoma.
He was among seven people convicted in a scheme to illegally sell Jayhawk season tickets.
In his filing last month, Jones had claimed his lawyer did a poor job. He had argued his defense attorney prevented him from cooperating with an internal university investigation. Two defendants who did cooperate received probation.
