NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – A former star quarterback was convicted yesterday of drug and trespass charges. Todd Marvin Marinovich, 47, Irvine, pleaded guilty to a court offer of five misdemeanor counts including attempted aggravated trespass of a residence, trespass with interference of property rights, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and public nudity. Marinovich was sentenced to three years of formal probation and 90 days in county jail stayed pending successful completion of outpatient drug rehabilitation.

Marinovich was a professional quarterback with various American and Canadian football leagues between 1991 and 2001.

Sometime before 9:00 p.m. on Aug. 19, 2016, the Irvine Police Department (IPD) received a phone call from an Irvine resident reporting a naked man on the Venta Spur Trail near a home on Bluecoat.

Marinovich left a brown bag containing methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, a marijuana pipe, and his wallet and driver's license on the trail. The defendant was naked and trespassed into the backyard of a home on Bluecoat before he attempted to gain access to the residence by pulling at the sliding back door.

Deputy District Attorney Danielle Mosh of the Harbor Justice Center prosecuted this case.
