Ex-NFL QB Ryan Leaf sentenced to 5 years

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has been sentenced to five years in prison in Texas for violating terms of his probation. A Texas prosecutor says the former San Diego Chargers quarterback and Washington State standout won't have to serve any time behind bars in Texas because of time he's served in Montana. Leaf violated his Texas probation when he ran afoul with the law in Montana for breaking into a home to steal prescription drugs. He pleaded guilty for felony burglary and criminal possession of a dangerous drug in 2012. Leaf attorney Bill Kelly III said the Texas judge gave Leaf credit retroactively for his Montana prison time. The 38-year-old has been granted parole but has not been released.

NFL to look into its handling of Rice case

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL called in a former FBI director to examine how it pursued and handled evidence in the Ray Rice domestic violence case as pressure increased for the league to be more transparent about its original investigation. The move late Wednesday came hours after The Associated Press reported that a law enforcement officer said he sent an NFL executive a video in April that showed Rice striking his then-fiancee at a casino. Goodell has maintained that no one in the NFL saw the video until it was released by TMZ Sports Monday. Women's organizations, members of Congress and players have called for more detail about the NFL's handling of the Rice case. The criticism intensified after the law enforcement official's account.
