Auburn receives federal subpoena in bribery scandal

Lamont Evans

FOX23 got a copy of the subpoena that was sent to Oklahoma State University from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District Court of NY.

In the aftermath of the arrest of former Oklahoma State's men's basketball assistant Lamont Evans as part of a federal bribery investigation, the program must now turn over any and all documents relating to NCAA violations, dating back October 1, 2014, to a NY grand jury.

Among the others documents Oklahoma State has been asked to turn over, according to The Oklahoman.

Person was suspended without pay after prosecutors said the former National Basketball Association player accepted about $91,500 in bribes to steer clients to a Pittsburgh-based financial adviser when they reached the National Basketball Association. He has since been suspended by Oklahoma State and is expected to appear in court on Thursday. Among the items being sought include text messages, social media messages, computer records, the personnel file of Evans, and all documents and communications pertaining to financial aid for all current student athletes on Oklahoma State's men's basketball team. The grand jury also is demanding communications with any parent of any current member of the basketball team.

First-year Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton said he hasn't spoken with Evans, his lead assistant, since his arrest, though he has read every page of the FBI's investigation.

The school provided the subpoena to The Associated Press after a public records request. It was dated September 27, and asks that the university either turn over all documents sought by October 17 or to send a representative to NY to appear before the grand jury.

The three other assistants - Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson, USC's Tony Bland and Auburn's Chuck Person - each made initial appearances in front of a judge in NY on Tuesday and were released on $100,000 bonds.
