Ex-NFL quarterback Todd Marinovich has been sentenced in his bizarre drug case and will avoid jail if he plays his cards right … but the good news is he's been sober for 8 months!
As we previously reported, the former USC star was arrested back in August after cops say they found him naked in a stranger's backyard. Police say he also ditched a bag of drugs near the property.
According to court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Marinovich pled guilty to 5 misdemeanor charges, including meth possession, unlawful public nudity and trespassing. Prosecutors dropped a weed charge.
The judge gave him 90 days in jail, but he won't have to serve any time behind bars if he completes a 6-month outpatient rehab program.
Marinovich was also sentenced to 3 years probation.
His lawyer, Adam Cole, tells us the ex-QB has been sober and in a treatment program since his arrest and is in "super good spirits." We're told he's planning on doing community outreach for other at-risk people.
