Former NFL running back Derek Loville was sentenced to 15 months in prison Wednesday for his role in a drug distribution network.
According to Kristina Davis of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Loville was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.
While in court Wednesday, Loville said the following regarding his situation, per Davis: "I've lost a lot through all of this. First of all my respect."
The 48-year-old Loville was part of a gambling and drug-trafficking ring run by Owen Hanson called ODOG Enterprise.
Loville's attorney, Francisco Sanchez, said his client became addicted to painkillers and other drugs following his NFL career, which led to his involvement with Hanson.
Loville admitted to distributing drugs from 2011 to 2015 as part of a plea agreement.
Loville was primarily a reserve, although he did register 1,385 total yards and 13 touchdowns for the Niners in 1995 and won three Super Bowl rings during his NFL run.
