Prosecutors Not Pursuing Man Accused Of Blackmailing Kansas AD Lew Perkins

A couple days ago we passed along word from Lew Perkins' attorney that his client would not be pursuing charges against a man Perkins claims blackmailed himi.

Now comes word from the Douglas County prosecutors office via the Associated Press that they also would not be pursuing charges.

Prosecutors say they will not file criminal charges against a man accused of trying to blackmail University of Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins.The Douglas County prosecutors disclosed their decision Tuesday.

That should about wrap up this discussion. Perkins seemingly didn't violate any laws here but the news of the blackmail came on the heels of the ticket scandal so his name was dragged aplenty through the mud.
