HELENA, Mont. — A Montana prosecutor has formally charged former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf with four felonies in connection with allegations that he broke into homes to steal prescription painkillers.
Cascade County Attorney John Parker charged Leaf Thursday with two counts of burglary and two counts of criminal possession of a dangerous drug.
Leaf is accused of entering an acquaintance's home to steal oxycodone on March 29. He was arrested the next day and released after posting bail.
Authorities say he broke into another home and stole hydrocodone two days later.
If convicted, Leaf faces a possible prison sentence of up to 50 years on all four charges.
Leaf is jailed without bond on a 30-day hold on charges that he violated his Texas probation with his Montana arrest.
