WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The previous attorney for a former University of Kansas athletics consultant is expected to testify Monday at an evidentiary hearing to determine whether he did a poor job in defending his client during the prosecution of a $2 million ticket scalping conspiracy.
U.S. District Judge Monti Belot wants to hear from Thomas Blubaugh's defense attorney as he considers whether to grant the convicted man's request for a shorter sentence.
Blubaugh was sentenced in 2011 to 46 months in prison after previously pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States. He wants the judge to reduce his prison sentence to no more than 33 months.
