given probation in recruiting scandal IXPtlllkl It 11 I11 il 1 T I t f 1 l T t By KEVIN OHANLON Associated Press Writer WACO Texas AP In granting probation to three former Baylor Uni versity assistan basketball coaches con victed of conspiracy and fraud in a recruiting scheme a federal judge chas tised prosecutors for pursuing the case District Judge Walter Smith Jr said he had no legal grounds to dismiss a jurys verdict i i April that Kevin Gray 40 Troy Drummond 26 and Gary Thomas 32 w re guilty of federal con spiracy and wiie and mail fraud charges But Smith sdd Congress clearly nev er meant the law to be applied in that manner If a motion for judgment of acquittal could be based on the governments extreme lack of prosecutorial judgment none of the motions could even be Smith wrote Gray Drummond and Thomas embraced and wept tears of joy in the courtroom after the probated sentences were announced They could have been sentenced up to five years in prison and fined up to on each count The coaches were found guilty of giv ing junior college players term papers and of changing their test scores to help them qualify for admission to Baylor which was offering them basketball scholarships The mail fraud and wire fraud charges were filed because fax equipment and the Postal Service were used Smith said case law requires that there be a tangible loss of goods or property as a result of the fraud that the coaches intended to cause that loss and that they gained from it There is no financial in this Smith said Prosecutors had argued that the men cost Baylor University more than including the cost of the schol arships given to the recruits who cheated revenues lost from the schools self imposed ban on television appearances and the cost of the NCAA investigation Presentence reports which judges use to help determine a defendants sen tence called for jail time for the men They knew it was wrong to do what they did Yet they did it cheat ing and lying I dont think that behavior is condoned by the Assistant Attorney John Phinizy said But Smith granted probation saying he was influenced by the mens forthright admission in court that they did wrong I tried to be a good solid individual citizen I think sometimes you get overzealous It wasnt the right thing to Gray said Drummond said he had hurt a lot of people and I apologize for that Id just like a chance to get on with my Thomas said I know what I did was wrong My job and my reputation are Jason Ervin Marcus Thompson Shan non Brantley and Tyrone Davis were held out of the 199394 season Jerome
