MENOMONIE (AP) -- A prosecutor says a former University of Wisconsin-Stout football player pleaded guilty today to two charges in a deal that calls for him to testify about how he obtained steroids.

Former senior linebacker Luke Steffen was charged in December with maintaining a drug trafficking place and three other drug crimes.

He pleaded guilty today to possession of a non-narcotic controlled substance, an anabolic steroid, and maintaining a drug trafficking place.

Dunn County District Attorney James Peterson says Steffen was sentenced to 10 days in jail, 100 hours of community service and one year of probation on the possession charge.

Peterson says sentencing on the other charge will be deferred for one year and the charge dismissed if Steffen commits no more crimes and testifies truthfully in other cases.

Peterson says Steffen is expected to be a witness in cases against three other people charged in the undercover drug probe.

That group includes two other ex-football players.
