Plea Bargain in Muncie Drug Case

December 13, 1988

Chuck Muncie, former National Football League running back whose star was tarnished by drug involvement, pleaded guilty Monday to a federal charge of cocaine distribution as part of a plea bargain.

Muncie, 35, entered the plea during a hearing before U.S. District Judge J. Lawrence Irving, who scheduled a Feb. 13 sentencing date for the former San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints player.

Under the plea bargain worked out between defense attorney Cindy Aaron and Assistant U.S. Attorney Pat Swan, three of the four drug counts against Muncie will be dismissed at sentencing. The government also agreed to recommend a probationary sentence with no prison time for Muncie, Aaron said.
