Ex-Ohio State (and Indianapolis Colts) QB Art Schlichter was sentenced Friday to almost 11 years in prison for scamming people in a million-dollar sports ticket scheme.
The 52-year-old Schlichter is no stranger to the penal system - the gambling addiction that ruined his NFL career landed him in prison once before.
In addition to the ticket scheme, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson's sentence also included Schlichter's probation violation on his prior forgery conviction in 1997).
Good behavior might have him out after 9 years.
Authorities say he promised college and NFL game tickets to his customers, but stiffed them for thousands of dollars. He plead guilty in the fall and was put on house arrest pending his sentencing. In January, he was busted twice for testing positive for cocaine.
Schlichter played at Ohio State from 1978-1981.
