OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma sports marketing agent has been sentenced to prison and ordered to pay nearly $698,000 in restitution for misusing charity funds.
Bill Horn, 59, was sentenced to 15 months behind bars Thursday after pleading guilty to two felony tax charges in September, The Oklahoman reported. He admitted to lying on annual foundation forms sent to the IRS.
Horn is scheduled to begin his sentence in February.
Horn founded a charity in 2006 for his client, Tommie Harris, a former defensive tackle at the University of Oklahoma who also played for the Chicago Bears.
