A former University of Kansas athletics official has asked a federal judge to delay his sentencing in a case tied to a $1 million ticket scalping scandal at the school.
Jason Jeffries, the school's former assistant director of ticket operations, pleaded guilty in July to knowing about the scam and hiding it from authorities.
Wednesday's motion says the government has agreed to allow Jeffries to earn a reduction in sentencing in exchange for his help in the ongoing investigation and prosecution of ticket improprieties at the university.
The filing contends that can't be done until resolution of other cases which prosecutors have advised may take at least six months.
