SAN DIEGO (AP) - A former University of San Diego basketball star has pleaded guilty in a college sports bribery case.
U-T San Diego ( http://bit.ly/SuPOcC) reports Brandon Johnson pleaded guilty Thursday to soliciting a current team member to influence the outcome of a game through a bribe.
However, his attorney says the school's all-time leading scorer never profited from the scheme and never personally threw a game.
Johnson and nine others were charged in federal court with running a sports betting business to fix West Coast Conference games.
Former USD assistant coach T.J. Brown pleaded guilty Tuesday. He and Johnson each face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Johnson's attorney says he'll recommend no prison time.
Six other defendants also have pleaded guilty and await sentencing.
