Ex-AD Pleads Guilty to Stealing from KY College

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A former Northern Kentucky University athletic director has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $300,000 from the school.

Attorney General Jack Conway says Scott Eaton pleaded guilty to a theft charge Thursday in Campbell Circuit Court.

Conway called Eaton's behavior "unconscionable" and says the 50-year-old agreed to serve the maximum term of 10 years in prison and repay $311,215 to the school.

Eaton's attorney did not immediately return calls and emails seeking comment.

Eaton was fired by the college's president last year over improper relationships with female employees and a student.

The school in Highland Heights hired an outside firm to review the athletic department's accounts, which eventually led to the charge.

Prosecutors say Eaton used his university-issued credit card to buy gift cards used to purchase items for his personal use.
