Show them jail time

My Arkansas News Bureau column this week discusses a bill by Rep. David Sanders that would put some real teeth into the law that punishes sports agents for illegally providing gifts to college athletes. Sports agents are the only guilty parties that never get punished when this happens; the universities, the players and the fans are the ones who suffer. Sanders’ bill would make the crime a felony, raise fines to $250,000, and revoke their license for five years. It’s a good start.
