Romanowski's wife pleads innocent

Broncos linebacker Bill Romanowski's wife pleaded innocent Tuesday to charges she fraudulently obtained a prescription diet drug for him.

A judge scheduled a four-day jury trial in March for Julie Romanowski, who was charged last year.

Each of the eight felony counts against her is punishable by one to three years in prison and a fine of $1,000 to $100,000. She also faces a fine and up to 18 months in prison on a separate conspiracy count.

She declined comment after the brief hearing.

A Nov. 6 motions hearing has been scheduled for Bill Romanowski, meaning he probably will not stand trial until after the NFL season.

He is charged with using a prescription drug prescribed for somebody else.
