Judge demands proof Larry Johnson met terms of sentence

Thursday July 17th, 2014

An attorney on Thursday said he will produce paperwork showing that former NFL running back Larry Johnson, who was convicted in a domestic violence case, completed required community service and counseling as part of a July 2013 sentence.

A judge in Las Vegas, where Johnson was arrested in October 2012 for allegedly strangling his ex-girlfriend, gave the attorney, Gregory Knapp, a deadline of July 30 to supply proof that Johnson has met the terms of the sentence.

Johnson pleaded no contest in July 2013 to misdemeanor battery and assault.

Johnson, 34, last played in the NFL in 2011, appearing in one game for the Miami Dolphins before being released.
