Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle added a felony charge on Tuesday for allegedly threatening a jail deputy on May 14 while he was already in jail, according to the Wichita Eagle.
The Sedgwick Country District Attorney’s Office decided to charge Randle with one count of criminal threat, which carries a presumptive sentence of five to 17 months in prison.
The case – Randle’s third locally with felony charges – is the latest in a string of legal woes faced by the former Wichita Southeast High School standout. The Cowboys released him in November.
Randle has a preliminary hearing on July 6.
