LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Federal prosecutors are questioning child support payments of nearly $100,000 that a former University of Kansas employee made before pleading guilty in a ticket scheme.

Prosecutors have been pursuing assets of former assistant athletics director Rodney Jones and other defendants who pleaded guilty last year to stealing more than $2 million in football and basketball tickets from the university.

Jones is serving a 46-month prison sentence. His personal take from the ticket scheme was believed to be $359,000.

The Lawrence Journal World reports (http://bit.ly/O8DheL ) that the U.S. Attorney's office says in court documents that about $100,000 in child support payments Jones made before his guilty plea were fraudulent.

An attorney for Jones former wife said Jones' lawyers contended the advance payments were lawful.
