Former MU football player indicted on drug charges

LEBANON, OH — A former Miami University football player who was convicted of burglary in 2008 was indicted last week by a Warren County grand jury for allegedly altering a prescription.

23 year old, Zachary Marshall, was indicted for illegal processing of drug documents, a fifth-degree felony.

Warren County Assistant Prosecutor Matt Nolan says Marshall allegedly altered a prescription for Tylenol III, a Schedule III drug and uttered at a Mason pharmacy.

In May 2008, Marshall, a Mason High School graduate who anticipated playing as an offensive lineman for the RedHawks, had twice entered a woman's room at a Miami dormitory. On the second entry into the woman's dorm room, Marshall flopped down on top of her and placed a pillow over her face before leaving the room after the two struggled.

Marshall said he had been binge drinking at an Oxford bar and at a friend's house and had wandered into the wrong room by mistake.

He was convicted of burglary in October 2008 following a three-day jury trial and was sentenced in November 2008 to 60 days in jail, with credit for serving 36 days in jail, 120 days house arrest, 200 hours of community service, obtain drug and alcohol treatment, and placed on one year of supervised probation and four years general probation.
