A Texas judge has sentenced former Washington State quarterback and #2 overall pick Ryan Leaf to five years in prison today for violating terms of his probation. However, Leaf won’t have to serve the sentence after receiving credit for time served in Montana, where he is currently jailed after pleading guilty on charges related to stealing prescription medications. While Leaf’s charges — felony burglary and criminal possession of a dangerous drug — occurred in Montana, they were a violation of his Texas probation. Leaf pleaded guilty to both charges in 2012 and is currently serving out a seven year sentence at Montana State Prison, which can be reduced to five if he meets certain conditions imposed by the judge.
Leaf’s probation in Texas stems from multiple felonies related to substance abuse committed while living in Texas. He was sentenced to ten years probation and issued a $20,000 fine.
