— A judge has set a January hearing date for a former Kansas University athletics consultant seeking a shorter sentence for his part in a ticket-scalping conspiracy.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot will hear the case of Thomas Ray Blubaugh on Jan. 16.

Blubaugh is serving a 46-month sentence at a federal prison in Oklahoma. He pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to defraud the United States.

Blubaugh is the husband of Charlette Blubaugh, former ticket director for KU athletics. They were among seven people convicted in a $2 million scheme involving the theft and sale of Jayhawk basketball and football tickets.

Thomas Blubaugh contends the sentencing court improperly considered the value of tickets he had hidden in a storage facility. He also claims his lawyer did a poor job.
