WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A judge has delayed a hearing for a former University of Kansas athletics consultant seeking a shorter sentence for his role in a ticket-scalping conspiracy.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Thursday put off until Feb. 19 the hearing for Thomas Ray Blubaugh.

Blubaugh is serving a 46-month sentence for conspiracy to defraud the United States. He is the husband of Charlette Blubaugh, former ticket director for Kansas athletics.

Belot also granted a prosecution request for copies of files from Blubaugh's previous attorney. The judge said Blubaugh waived attorney-client privilege when he claimed attorney Stephen Robinson did a poor job on his case. Robinson is expected to testify.

The Blubaughs were among seven people convicted in a $2 million scheme involving the theft and sale of Jayhawk athletic tickets.
