Prosecutor Says Fraud Victims Should Get Money Awarded To Schlichter
Franklin County prosecutor Ron O'Brien says multiple fraud victims should receive money awarded to former Ohio State quarterback Art Schlichter from a national concussion settlement.
Schlichter is serving a nearly 11-year prison sentence on federal fraud charges involving college and NFL game tickets promised but never delivered. One of Schlichter's victims was retiree Anita Barney, who was later convicted of defrauding others under Schlichter's direction. O'Brien is asking a judge to award money Barney is owed by Schlichter to Barney's victims.
