Former Colts Quarterback In Jail

Last updated on Thursday, January 26, 2012

(COLUMBUS, OH) - A federal judge has set a sentencing date for ex-Colts quarterback Art Schlichter in a fraud case stemming from a million dollar ticket selling scheme.

The 52-year old Schlichter was jailed last week after police say he violated the conditions of his bond by testing positive for cocaine use while free on house arrest.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson on Wednesday scheduled Schlichter sentencing for Feb. 7 in Columbus Ohio.

Police say the former quarterback whose career was derailed by a gambling addiction, defrauded more than 50 people by promising college football and NFL tickets he never delivered.

He pleaded guilty in October, but the agreement calling for him to serve about 10 years behind bars still needs the judge's approval.
