Former CFL player Matechuk receives jail time
Monday, September 12, 2011
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) -- Canadian football player Jordan Matechuk has been sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty in July to possession of steroids and marijuana.
Matechuk was a long snapper for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. They released him in early June after U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced his May 31 arrest at the International Bridge crossing at the U.S.-Canada border.
CBP said Matechuk told an officer he was traveling to Hamilton from Alberta.
A message for Matechuk's attorney Monday was not returned. His jail term includes credit for two days.
