The former director of the campus bookstore at Missouri State University in Springfield has been sentenced to serve five years and three months in prison for stealing more than $1 million. The Springfield News-Leader says Mark Brixey must make restitution of $1,329,484 to the university, its insurance carrier and to the Internal Revenue Service. Brixey began working at the bookstore in the 1980s as a student. He graduated in 1989, was hired full time in January 1991 and became a supervisor in 1993. He was promoted to director in October 2000. The theft was discovered last year.
