Brandon Johnson, the University of San Diego men's basketball all-time leading scorer, was sentenced to 6-months in federal prison for his role in a sports bribery conspiracy. "BJ" was charged with several co-defendants in a one-count federal indictment with conspiracy to commit sports bribery, conduct an illegal gambling business, and distribute marijuana in April of 2011. The government believes that BJ knew the betting odds and actively participated in point-shaving in at least four different games. Johnson will start serving his cusodial sentence on May 31, 2013.
