Daughter of former Chiefs kicker charged in cocaine conspiracy

June 18, 1997

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The daughter of NFL Hall of Fame kicker Jan Stenerud has been charged with participating in a large cocaine conspiracy.

Klancy J. Stenerud, 25, was arrested Tuesday morning and appeared in federal court before being released on $15,000 unsecured bond. She was one of 20 people named in a secret indictment issued last week by a grand jury in Lake Charles, La.

The indictment alleges Klancy Stenerud was involved in a conspiracy to distribute more than 11 pounds of cocaine and crack cocaine each, and more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana from August 1993 to the present.

She was also charged with two counts of money laundering.

Stenerud, who played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1967-79 and later kicked for Green Bay and Minnesota, was the NFL’s career leader in field goals until his mark was passed last season by Nick Lowery of the New York Jets.

Stenerud, who retired after the 1985 season, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991, the first kicker so honored.
