Former San Diego standout Brandon Johnson was sentenced on Friday to six months in prison for his involvement in a game-fixing scheme, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Johnson, 26, will begin his prison sentence on May 31 after the court agreed to the delay to allow the the youth team he coaches in the Houston area to finish its season.
He was one of 10 people indicted by a United States federal court in April 2011 for his part in a scandal that included game-fixing, an illegal sports gambling operation, and marijuana distribution.
The court determined Johnson took part in "fixing approximately four games" during the 2009-10 season and that he attempted to recruit another player to to the same in the following season. Johnson has continually denied taking any part in fixing games.
Among the others indicted in the case was former San Diego assistant coach T.J. Brown, who Johnson admitted receiving money from as part of the operation.
Johnson, who is San Diego's all-time leading scorer, led the Toreros to a WCC Tournament championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in 2008. He played at San Diego from 2005 to 2010.
