GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf was sentenced to nine months of lockdown addiction treatment followed by time in a prerelease center after pleading guilty last month to breaking into a house and illegally possessing painkillers.

District Judge Kenneth Neill of Great Falls sentenced Leaf on Tuesday to seven years with the Department of Corrections, with two years suspended. Neill recommended that Leaf’s sentence start with treatment at a program in Lewistown, followed by time in a prerelease center.

Leaf told the judge he was humiliated and embarrassed for himself and his family and added that since his April arrest, jail “has been a sanctuary.”

A prosecutor in Texas also is seeking to revoke Leaf’s 10-year probationary sentence from a 2010 plea agreement for stealing prescription pain medicine.
