LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Reaction continues to charges in the Derby ticket controversy involving an Oldham County magistrate.

Attorney Larry Wilder sent us a release reiterating that his client, Steve Masiello, a University of Louisville assistant basketball coach, will not be charged with a crime. According to Wilder, the Clark County Prosecutor's Office says Masiello was not involved in any wrong doing.

UofL athletic director Tom Jurich also released a statement saying that Masiello has been up front with the university since the matter first surfaced and has never wavered.

On June 7, 20 charges were filed in Clark County, IN against Scott Davis, the owner of DerbyDeals.com. Davis is accused of ripping off five people who claim they received tickets of lesser value than they paid for and that some of those tickets weren't legit.

Davis has filed suit against Masiello accusing him of taking money for the tickets and not delivering them.

Davis has a criminal summons to appear in Clark Superior Court on June 21 at 1:30 p.m.
