Brandon Simmons was director of sales and marketing in the
athletics department. He pleaded guilty to failing to tell
authorities about the $2 million scalping scandal and was sentenced
in March 2011 to two years' probation.
U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Wednesday rejected Simmons'
request to terminate the probation early.
Simmons has paid nearly $26,000 so far of a $157,000 restitution
order. Belot followed the probation office's recommendation to
continue the probation to ensure Simmons continues to make
payments.
Simmons was among seven Kansas athletics officials convicted in
the unlawful sale of Jayhawk football and basketball season tickets
to ticket brokers and others.
