Cody was acquitted of felony counts of aggravated animal cruelty, but was convicted on five other counts of neglect, and was also found guilty of illegally possessing an alligator and convicted on two drug charges.
Cody was charged after prosecutors alleged his dog Taz starved to death in January. Cody’s girlfriend Kourtney J. Kelley was also charged in the case. She was found guilty on five counts of neglect.
The Ravens selected Cody in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft out of Alabama. He has been out of the NFL since 2014, when he played in only one game for Baltimore.
