Has-been NFL quarterback is in drug trouble again:

Former USC and Oakland Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich is serving a 90-day jail term stemming from an arrest in Newport Beach last month for possessing methamphetamine, officials said Monday.

Marinovich, who played at Mater Dei and Capistrano Valley, pleaded guilty last week to a felony count of possessing a controlled substance and two misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and the unauthorized possession of hypodermic needles, said Mark Macaulay of the Orange County district attorney’s office.

Marinovich, 35, was on probation for a 2001 conviction for felony heroin possession.

What? 90 Days?!?!?! I can assure you that had any “average citizen” with Marinovich’s record been up on similar charges, he/she would have been off to the state pen for at least a couple of years.
