Kiel Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges
San Diego Chargers safety Terrence Kiel pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor and felony drug charges as part of a deal with prosecutors.
Kiel was ordered to undergo counseling for gambling, which prosecutors maintained caused his financial problems, and perform volunteer work. The felony will be dismissed and he likely will be placed on probation if he performs those tasks and doesn't have further legal troubles before his sentencing, scheduled for August.
Kiel was arrested by Drug Enforcement Administration agents at the Chargers' training facility in September and was charged with illegally shipping codeine-based cough syrup to Texas. Kiel reportedly lost money playing blackjack at casinos in the San Diego area.
