It's the amount investigators said Fennell and Frank Shahadey received in kickbacks from contracts involving the school corporation.

Fennell argued the amount was too high and had been calculated incorrectly.

The court disagreed and said Fennell didn't prove there was an error.

Fennell is currently serving a 24-month prison sentence.
