Leaf to be sentenced for drugs, burglary

Leaf to be sentenced for drugs, burglary
June 19, 2012

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf is scheduled to be sentenced in Montana on Tuesday after having pleaded guilty last month to breaking into a house and illegally possessing painkillers.

A plea agreement calls for Leaf to be sentenced to nine months in a secure drug treatment facility, followed by time in a pre-release center as part of a five-year term with the Montana Department of Corrections for the burglary charge. The state is recommending a suspended five-year term for the drug charge.

District Judge Kenneth Neill of Great Falls is not bound by the May 8 plea agreement, but has said Leaf needs treatment.

A prosecutor in Texas also is seeking to revoke Leaf's 10-year probationary sentence from a 2010 plea agreement for stealing prescription pain medicine.

Wow, I am getting to to the point that when I read about athletes being arested it doesn't really shock me anymore especially concerning drugs. But breaking into a home to get them? Gezz!

I know Barb. How do you go from a great college QB, a first round pick with a super bright future, to breaking into someones house? When is this going going to hit rock bottom. Just when you think he has...he does something even more stupid.

Most people don't remember how close everyone thought he and Manning were....just think of how different football history would be if the Colts had taken Leaf and the Chargers had taken Manning....

Sadly, I wouldn't be shocked if someday, the next big headline about Leaf will be how he took his own life, or something else tragic.

I must be gettin' old... I still think baseball is cool.

Even though he was shit, he made a lot of money. Character flaw one would suspect.
