BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A Bozeman man has denied charges that he took nearly $97,000 from two basketball leagues, including Montana State University’s intramurals program.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1bfI5z3 ) Jeffery Allen Hix pleaded not guilty Monday to two counts of felony theft. A trial date has not been set.

The case came to light when an MSU student who refereed intramural games as well as games for the Bozeman City League Basketball reported he was being paid for work with both leagues from MSU.

An investigation found Hix had paid city league referees using MSU funds totaling just over $10,000. Court records say the city league’s bank records indicated that over eight years, Hix wrote checks to himself and his wife totaling nearly $71,000 and made personal purchases totaling another $16,000.
