Former Ohio State and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Art Schlichter has been sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison for his role in a multi-million dollar ticketing scheme.
This isn’t the ex-Buckeye’s first rodeo, either.
Schlichter, 52, has spent time in prison in Indiana related to his gambling addiction, which he claimed to have overcome. He later tested positive for cocaine use while on house arrest following his guilty plea in the ticket case.
This dude must just love prison, RT QB Art Schlichter gets nearly 11 years in prison for scamming participants in sports ticket scheme.
