Published: Wednesday, October 19, 2022 - 5:19pm

A former boss in the ticket office of the Phoenix Suns has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Plus he has to pay nearly a half-million dollars in restitution and back taxes.

Authorities say from 2017 to 2019, Jeffrey Marcussen sold unused Suns tickets online and pocketed the cash. Marcussen was a Suns employee for more than 15 years.

He pleaded guilty last spring to charges of fraud and theft.
