Schlicter must also spend one day in jail for the conviction, but this is hardly his first stint with being in a correctional facility. He spent time in prison for his role in a ticket scheme where he stole millions of dollars from his victims. He also spent ten years in prison prior to that for crimes related to illegal gambling.

Schlicter played quarterback for Ohio State from 1978 to 1981.
