The sentencing of John Junker will mark the end of criminal cases that arose from the contribution scandal that jeopardized the bowl's NCAA license and led to Junker's ouster.
Junker has admitted being involved in a scheme in which bowl employees made illegal campaign contributions to politicians and were reimbursed by the nonprofit bowl.
Bowl employees were reimbursed at least $46,000 for campaign contributions.
Junker was sentenced last week in federal court to eight months in prison for his part in the scheme.
He will be sentenced Thursday for his guilty plea to a state charge of solicitation to commit a fraudulent scheme.
