WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle's stay in the Sedgwick County Jail may be coming to an end. 

The Wichita native reached plea agreements on several criminal charges today.   As part of the agreement,  prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to a sentence of five years of probation.   His probation includes paying restitution and child support and registering as a violent offender for 15 years.  

Randle was convicted last year of battery and burglary for an incident at a house party in Wichita. A jury convicted Randle of hitting a woman with his car and breaking into the house.  

Randle will be formally sentenced on August 17th.  As of today,  Randle has served two years, three months and 16 days in custody.
