Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf will spend the first part of his prison sentence in a treatment center in Montana and will be eligible for monitored release if he successfully completes the program, according to the Associated Press.
Leaf, the second overall pick in the 1998 draft by the San Diego Chargers, was sentenced to seven years with the Montana Department of Corrections with the possibility of having two years repealed if he complies with all the terms of his sentencing.
Leaf was arrested twice for breaking into houses and stealing painkillers. He also has a 10-year probation from a drug conviction in Texas that that state's authorities are trying to have revoked as a result of the Montana conviction.
