Second Man Pleads Guilty In KU Ticket Scandal

On Wednesday, former KU staffer Jason Jeffries pleaded guilty in the KU ticket scandal.

On Thursday, the second former KU staffer, Brandon Simmons, also pleaded guilty, according to the Lawrence Journal-World.

"He's cooperated from the very get go on this thing. He's been interviewed twice (by the investigator for KU), he's been interviewed by federal agents," Mark Bennett, Jr., Simmons' attorney, said after the hearing on Thursday. "He's provided every piece of information he has, or has been asked about."

Both men are accused of having knowledge of the ticket scandal but not telling authorities.
