Indictments faced by 8 of 10 charged in college hoops case

The Associated Press - November 8, 2017 10:54 am

NEW YORK (AP) – Indictments have been returned against four assistant coaches charged in a bribe-paying college basketball scandal.

The indictments were returned Tuesday in Manhattan federal court against eight of 10 men arrested in September.

The charges and accusations in three indictments largely mirrored criminal complaints filed against the men when they were arrested.

Prosecutors say hundreds of thousands in bribes were paid to influence star athletes’ choice of schools, shoe sponsors and agents.

The coaches charged are Chuck Person of Auburn, Emanuel Richardson of Arizona, Tony Bland of Southern California and Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State.

The time to return an indictment was extended for a month for two defendants, including Brad Augustine, the AAU program director who stepped down after his arrest.
