Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Reggie Rucker has been sentenced to 21 months in a Federal Prison for embezzlement. He played in twelve National Football League seasons from 1970–1981, for the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. He played college football for Boston University.

WKYC.com is reporting, a federal judge earlier this week sentenced Rucker to 21 months. Rucker’s lawyers and prosecutors had agreed via a plea deal to a potential range of 21 to 27 months.

Rucker admitted to stealing more than $110,000 from a charity he ran. Prosecutors reportedly believed he took even more than they were prepared to prove in court.

He will likely end up at a Prison work camp and get out before 20 months served.
