Suspended Defensive Lineman Johnny Jolly Sentenced To Six Years In Prison

Friday November 18th, 2011

Suspended defensive lineman Johnny Jolly was sentenced to six years in prison today for violating the terms of his probation, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Jolly, a Green Bay Packer from 2006-2009, was sentenced to probation in April after he was charged with possession of a controlled substance. Police reported finding a bottle containing 600 grams of codeine in Jolly’s car. He was given probation as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

He was later arrested and charged again in October for possession of codeine and tampering with evidence.
