Ex-Ventura College Basketball Coach To Pay Restitution

VENTURA (AP) — A former Ventura College basketball coach convicted of misappropriation of public funds has been ordered to pay $45,000 in restitution.

Greg Winslow was found guilty in March of three felony counts — misappropriation of public funds, failure to pay public money and grand theft. He was sentenced to a year in jail.

The 46-year-old ex-coach was accused, among other things, of getting out-of-state basketball players to falsely register as California students, depriving the college of more than $40,000 in tuition.

The Ventura County Star reported Friday that a judge accepted the restitution agreement signed by Winslow and James Meznek, the college’s chancellor.

Initially, the college was seeking $873,181 as restitution to recover its costs for the investigation.

Prosecutor Karen Wold says the district attorney agreed to the $45,000 restitution agreement.
