Leary pleads guilty

  • 07/16/2010 10:52 am in

The Associated Press reports on Friday that Todd Leary has plead guilty to charges associated with the mortgage fraud scheme he was charged in.

Thirty-nine-year-old Leary of Carmel pleaded guilty in court Thursday to a felony charge of misappropriating title insurance escrow funds. His agreement with Allen County prosecutors calls for him to face up to three years in prison, with that cut in half if he pays nearly $295,000 in restitution before his October sentencing hearing.

If Leary faces jail time in the coming months, it stands to reason he won’t return as a radio analyst for IU next season, if that decision hasn’t already been made.

    I hope Dakich takes over for Leary, would be great to hear him and Fish. In fact I hope they let them do some tv games on BTN.

    When he heard about the allegations, why didn't he leave the radio station so all of the sanctions were placed upon the radio program? He could have latched on to another station before anyone knew it was indeed him that was at fault. Then in three years, he could do it again and take the Kentucky head coaching job when it opens?

    Sheesh Leary get with the program!

    Funny. Why can't he do a work/release program ?

    That way he can earn the money to pay back what he owes.

    He can show up in his own version of “candy stripes” , number on the back, small ball and chain around the ankle ………..8pm games that go into overtime might be a problem.

  • Didn't the Journal-Gazette article describe him as the “former” radio announcer for Indiana games? Or am I lumping that in with “former Hoosiers player”?

  • MillaRed

    All I know is if I need 300K in a hurry I'm calling you first Jerry. Has he
    called yet?

    Well, at least he wasn't pinned for beating up his girlfriend or bringing a gun on campus or accepting benefits from agents…

  • Yeah, I think that anyone who played for Knight is allowed one free rape. Gimme a break, stop condoning what he did because he played for IU

    And I always thought Todd Leary was such a good decision-maker with his shots?!!!? Send him back to Bobby for one more year, the necessary discipline did not take.

  • BaseballBuc

    I hope that happens too. Although I can't see Dakich ever taking a job thats anything other than head coach of IU.

  • Kelin Blab

    I hope it is not laskowski….he is so boring

    Thanks for the info. You don’t win 20+ games a year in a big name conference just because of Wade. Roy Williams, who is a good coach, had 8 McDonald all stars last year and did not get to the big dance. The Cheater in KY can’t win it all with one and done players either. It takes time
    to build a consistent winner from scratch and IMO our Coach is on a mission to get there.

    Off topic, but when we talk about CTC and development D Wade comes up regularly. However, here in Madison there was a kid named Wes Matthews that played under Coach for three years at Marquette. The same kid just signed with the Blazers for 35 million dollars.

    Some might say the development of Matthews may be more impressive than Wade's. Yes he was Mr. Basketball in Wisconsin but he wasn't a scoring threat at all coming out of high school. And now he is also considered one of the best defenders in the NBA.

    Great point. I think I read on someone's twitter that he was a second round selection and that Crean was calling everyone begging every team to draft him. Go coach!

  • Jmossler

    I remember when Wes Matthews Sr. played for Wisconsin. He was pretty good. I think it was in the early 80s.
