(Edited: Misread article. Ricky turned down appeal in 2004 that would have prevented a 4 game suspension. This quote is by his old attorney.)
Sun Sentinel link via PFTThat's surprising that he would turn that plea down. Looks like a sweet offer. Perhaps he couldn't afford the $650,000 fine?"During our opening argument we had over 150 tests in which the urine was clean, and the one that was dirty was a 15," Ostrow said. "I asked if there was room for plea negotiation, and they offered Ricky the chance to be in the drug program for just another six months instead of the [mandated] two years and pay a fine of $650,000 in exchange for us dropping the appeal. And no four-game suspension.
"Ricky rejected it. The one thing you can predict about Ricky is his unpredictability."
