NFL | Police and courts: Ford pleads guilty to shooting
Ken Ritter, of the Associated Press, reports former NFL PK Cole Ford plead guilty to shooting at the home of entertainers Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn in 2004. Ford agreed to a felony plea that could lower his suspended sentence to one to six years in a Nevada prison, as long as he continues mental health treatment at a center in Tucson, Ariz. Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass ruled him incompetent to stand trial a year ago and rejected his attempts to plead guilty to the charges. Thursday, May 11, Glass deemed him competent and asked him if he understood the plea agreement, which will also require him to pay restitution and have no contact with Fischbacher or Horn. Ford plead guilty to shooting at a structure while several felony charges, including assault with a deadly weapon, were dismissed. Glass set sentencing for June 20, but he could be transferred to Tucson sooner if a suitable treatment center is found.
