I'll have some of that fifth if you would be so kind as to share. Seems to me that paying back any money that has been stolen is usually part of the punishment in any theft case. Why would this be any different?

because they(the crooks)are/were part of the ku hiearchy,its tough to punish your good friends,since there are a lot more people that should go down with them,but they are innocent,like " i didn't know what was going on lew"!!!!

Every penny plus interest. Hound them to the grave if need be.

If someone robbed a bank of $1 million and got caught 2 days later. Would the police say, you get to keep the money ,but you must do 5 years time for the robbery and everything will be squared away and your sentance will be completed?

wilbur...your last line hits the nail on the head. That's the frustrating thing about these discussion forums...when someone makes an absolutely logical statement (for a solution to a problem)...no one pays any attention.
WHY IS THAT??

I think the time would be better spent on sprucing up the Candice Davis Memorial Steps. BOO to anything connected with cleaning(s) for the "Athletic Corporation".

After their lawyers are done representing them, there will be little left to return. That said restitution should be required.

Trick question? How can you pay back something that is lost? Stolen - pay back yes.

He must make restitution in full, add a fifth of the value to it, and give it all to the owner. Leviticus 6:5

Pay back KU, and pay back the tax payers who had to prosecute the selfish, immoral dirt bags.
