LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The wife of pro golfer John Daly has reported to prison for a five-month sentence on a federal charge involving a drug ring and an illegal gambling operation.
Sherrie Miller Daly, 30, pleaded guilty in November 2004 to a charge of conspiracy to structure a transaction to evade the reporting requirement. Daly will serve five months of house arrest after she is released.
Daly is scheduled to be released June 23, said Rosie Harless, a
public information officer at the Federal Medical Center in
Sherrie Daly and her parents, Alvis and Billie Miller, were
indicted in Mississippi on charges stemming from what authorities
said was a drug ring and an illegal gambling operation.
Alvis Miller was sentenced to 2½ years in prison. Billie Miller received five months to serve and five months of home supervision.
Prosecutors have said the two-time major champion didn't know about his wife's activities, which took place between 1996 and 2002. John Daly met his fourth wife at a tournament in Memphis, Tenn., in 2001 and married her seven weeks later.
