The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association received the $421,500 repayments from former executive secretary Danny Rennels, OSSAA board member Rocky Burchfield said Wednesday.

Rennels agreed to the repayment when he plead guilty to embezzlement last month. Rennels had 30 days to pay the restitution. In addition to the restitution, Rennels was placed on probation for five years, must complete 175 hours of community service and must follow special conditions “for gambling addicted persons.”

Records show Rennels admitted he embezzled the money to pay off loans and gambling debts.

Rennels was fired March 9 after allegations of misappropriation of funds surfaced.
