PITTSBURGH (AP) -Former NFL player Bob Buczkowski pleaded guilty to helping run a million-dollar prostitution ring with his girlfriend out of his parents' suburban home.
The 43-year-old Buczkowski pleaded guilty Tuesday in Allegheny County court to two counts of promoting prostitution, six counts of possessing and dealing cocaine and other charges. He agreed to turn state's witness against others charged in the case, if their cases go to trial. Buczkowski is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 5.
State prosecutors said Buczkowski and girlfriend Amy Schifano ran the escort service Buckwild Entertainment, which did business as B.A.G. Enterprises Inc. Buczkowski provided the muscle and Schifano allegedly was the madam, prosecutors said. A hearing for Schifano is scheduled for next week, her attorney Patrick Thomassey said Tuesday.
A former defensive lineman at Pittsburgh, Buczkowski was drafted in the first round by the then-Los Angeles Raiders in 1986. He made appearances for the Raiders and Cardinals before playing 15 games for the Cleveland Browns in 1990. He was hampered by back problems and cut by Seattle in 1991.
