GREAT FALLS, MT (AP) – Former Cowboys 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.
