Former Northern Kentucky University Athletic Director Scott Eaton pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon in Campbell County Circuit Court to stealing more than $311,000 from the school. He's been ordered to repay the university and has agreed to serve the maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
Eaton was charged with theft by unlawful taking for diverting university funds for his own use. He was fired in March 2013 for having inappropriate relations with four university employees and a student.
Insight OTR is a project that started out as an honors course at Northern Kentucky University and has developed into an ongoing search for stories about the people, businesses, culture and history of one of Cincinnati’s most iconic neighborhoods.
I met with Cailtin Neely, creator of Insight OTR on the campus of NKU to learn more.
