A former administrative manager at Vanderbilt University Law School was sentenced to 22 years in prison on Tuesday after pleading guilty in the theft of more than $535,000 from his one-time employer.

Jason Hunt, 34, was accused of using a university credit card for personal purchases and writing fraudulent checks, report the National Law Journal and the Nashville City Paper. Hunt also pleaded guilty to statutory rape for a sexual relationship with two 17-year-old boys who cashed some of the checks.
