COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Court documents say former Ohio State and NFL quarterback Art Schlichter (SHLEES'-tuhr) will plead guilty to fraud charges linked to a million-dollar ticket-selling scheme.
An indictment filed Wednesday accuses Schlichter of deceiving people by falsely promising sports tickets at low prices based on his contacts.
Documents filed in federal court in Columbus say Schlichter will plead guilty to bank and wire fraud and filing a false tax return.
The charges against Schlichter say he used the money he got for tickets for personal expenses, to gamble and to repay older debts.
The 51-year-old Schlichter is expected to plead guilty to related state theft charges Thursday.
