OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Federal prosecutors have seized and sold University of Oklahoma season football tickets from a man convicted of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering.
David Ray Gaddis was convicted in 1998 and sentenced to 46 months in prison. He was ordered to pay $309,000 in restitution.
Acting U.S. Attorney Robert Troester says authorities discovered that Gaddis had purchased four season tickets on the 45-yard line and four Oklahoma-Texas game tickets for the 2009 season.
A federal judge denied Gaddis' objection to the seizure and ordered the OU Athletic Ticket office to surrender the tickets to prosecutors. Troester says the tickets were sold through a broker and the proceeds will go toward Gaddis' restitution debt.
Prosecutors didn't provide the tickets' value.
