SAN DIEGO (AP) - Prosecutors say the eighth and final defendant has been sentenced in a scheme to fix University of San Diego basketball games, bringing an end to a two-year legal saga.
A U.S. attorney's statement says 43-year-old Richard Garmo was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison and three years' probation. He faced a maximum of five years in prison.
Ten people were charged in the betting ring, but the dismissal of charges against two of them last week, including former player Brandon Dowdy, left Garmo as the last defendant.
Members of the group were charged with conspiring to pay players to influence the outcome of West Coast Conference games, then betting on them in Las Vegas. They included San Diego career scoring leader Brandon Johnson and former assistant coach T.J. Brown.
