NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -A former New York Yankees traveling secretary was spared prison time Friday for failing to report tips from players and coaches.
David Szen was sentenced to two years probation and a $7,500 fine. He also must pay back more than $10,000 in taxes on the tips he didn't report.
``I was wrong in not reporting all my income and I humbly apologize,'' Szen said in court. ``I can assure you you won't see me back here again.''
Szen could have faced up to three years in prison, though federal guidelines called for zero to six months.
Szen was the Yankees' media relations director in 1982, later worked for the Seattle Mariners and returned to the Yankees in the 1990s as traveling secretary, arranging charter flights, buses and hotel rooms for the team.
Szen pleaded guilty in December to filing a false tax return and admitted he failed to report more than $50,000 in tips from players and coaches. He was fired.
