Ex-Auburn Assistant Avoids Jail in Bribery Case

Jason Scott Headshot

Former Auburn basketball assistant coach Chuck Person was sentenced on Wednesday for his role in the massive bribery scandal that implicated some high profile programs. 

ESPN reports that Person got off relatively lightly, being sentenced to 200 hours of community service with two years of probation, despite sentencing guidelines that called for two years in prison. The other coaches who were caught up in the scandal and pleaded guilty also received lighter sentences. 

Person took $91,500 in bribes from a financial adviser in exchange for steering players he coached toward working with him. The adviser, however, was working as a cooperator with the government, and provided evidence in the case implicating Person.
