WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A judge will hear testimony on the legality of nearly $100,000 in future child support payments made by a former University of Kansas athletics official before he pleaded guilty in a ticket scam.
Federal Magistrate Judge Kenneth Gale on Thursday scheduled an evidentiary hearing Sept. 25 in the case of former assistant athletics director Rodney Jones. He is serving a 46-month prison sentence in Oklahoma and will appear by telephone.
Prosecutors have been pursuing assets from seven defendants who stole more than $2 million in Kansas football and basketball tickets. Jones made two transfers in 2010 from his retirement account to his ex-wife to cover eight years of future child support.
Prosecutors contend those are fraudulent transfers subject to being voided to pay court-ordered restitution.
