SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – Ten people, including two former basketball
players and a former assistant coach at the University of San Diego,
have been indicted in connection with a scheme to fix games since 2008,
federal prosecutors said on Monday.
The defendants were charged in the federal grand jury indictment with
scheming to fix University of San Diego Toreros basketball games by
bribing players and then betting on the games in Las Vegas.
All 10 defendants were charged with conspiracy to commit sports bribery,
conduct an illegal gambling business and distribute marijuana.
The indictment charged that the profits from selling marijuana and
betting on the games were used to fund further dealing and bribing.
Among those charged were former Toreros players Brandon Johnson and Brandon Dowdy, and former assistant coach Thaddeus Brown.
