Rodney Jones and Kassie Liebsch are likely to change their “not guilty” pleas in the KU ticket scandal

The fallout continues from this summer’s KU ticket scandal, in which five former KU athletics officials and a consultant allegedly sold more than 17,000 men’s basketball tickets and more than 2,000 football tickets and pocketed the proceeds.

They were all indicted in November. Two former KU athletics officials are going to federal court next week, apparently with plea deals, according to the AP. Kassie Liebsch, the ex systems analyst for the ticket office, has a change-in-plea hearing scheduled for January 13. Rodney Jones, the former assistant athletic director for the Williams

Educational Fund, is due in court for the same reason the next day.
