Alfonzo Dennard sentenced to 30 more days in jail after season


Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard’s attempt to continue his sentencing on a probation violation in Nebraska failed on Thursday, but he won’t have to miss any of the season as a result of the sentence.

Lori Pilger of the Lincoln Journal Star reports that Dennard has been sentenced to 30 days in jail on top of the 30 he’s already scheduled to serve starting in March 2014. The initial jail term was part of the sentence that Dennard received for assaulting a police officer in 2012 as was the probation that he violated when he was arrested on DUI charges.

The timing of the jail term means Dennard will remain available to the Patriots for the rest of the season.

Dennard will also have to remain on probation for another year and do another 100 hours of community service. Judge Stephanie Stacy also added a no-alcohol provision to the probation and told Dennard that this was his last chance.

Dennard will have to return to court on Friday for sentencing in the DUI case.

    “So you’re telling me there’s a chance…

    that I can not get caught next time?”

    Bill Bellichick is reportedly using a camera to make sure he’s on his best behavior in jail.

    The patriot way!

    In about 5 years, the whole patriots team will have enough people in jail to start a prison team

    This guy is about as useful as a poop flavored lollipop….send him to Dallas, he’ll fit right in.

    Last chance? Lol, you mean until his next screw up right? Then he will get off easy again & that will be his last chance. This is blatant preferential treatment & frankly, it’s disgusting. If it were me in his shoes do you think the judge is gonna let me wait until it’s a “good time at work”? Hell no! I wouldn’t have gotten all these continuances in the first place. How can anyone have any real faith in this legal system?

    Well, at least they worked around his personal schedule.

    He will be welcomed into the ravens family next year with Ray Lewis as his consultant.

    Dennard is a good player. Defintely the next best corner on the team to Talib.

    If you read about the incident he had with assulting a police officer it was a bit dubious. It was an off duty officer that was breaking up a bar fight and I don’t think he announced himself as police.

    The DUI was also strange, as he didn’t actually blow over, but the officer claimed Dennard didn’t blow properly. He clearly had been drinking something and why he would go back to Nebraska and have anything to drink is beyond me, but the circumstances were strange.

    It’s hard to say whether he’s a guy that deserves a chance or not. Obviously one more thing would be too many and he’ll be cut.

    It’s always a shame when a talented player ruins his opportunitiy. I hope he stays clean.

    Give him some slack , there are blue collar repeat offenders that never $ee jail.

    Tough luck haters, this was the league’s last chance to reel in the Patriots before the Super Bowl. With Talib and Dennard both in the lineup, they will eat up anyone’s passing game.

    See you in northern New Jersey the first Sunday in February. Lets hope for bad weather, Brady loves it!

    It’s his last chance…..until the next time. Apparently these judges don’t care that they allow athletes and celebs make them look like foolish azzes.

    It wasn’t “dubious” at all. The assault was witnessed and filmed on a bystanders cell phone. And who cares if he didn’t “announced himself as police”? It is illegal to assault somebody, period. Grow up.

  14. AngryHumanoid says: Dec 5, 2013 4:22 PM

    He certainly isn’t making some of the best decisions but his 2 run ins with the police are a bit iffy. The first was an undercover cop breaking up a bar fight who may or may not have identified himself, the other was a DUI arrest from a Breathalyzer test that he didn’t actually fail.

    Either way the lesson is the same: STOP GOING TO BARS AND DRINKING, GENIUS. Would it kill you to keep your nose 100% clean, at least until your probation ends?

  15. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 5, 2013 4:30 PM

    This is what the Patriots do.

  16. tigerlilac says: Dec 5, 2013 4:38 PM

    If they threw everyone in jail back in Boston for what Denard did in Nebraska there wouldn’t be anyone home in South Boston.

  17. wishingtonredslur says: Dec 5, 2013 5:11 PM

    That is so weird, I didn’t know you guys had a “open your schedule and clear it for 60 days after the Pats season is over” kind of legal system.

  18. all4patriots says: Dec 5, 2013 5:18 PM

    You can bet that a guy wearing a hoodie has also told him that it is is last chance.

    For those citing preferential treatment, the typical sentence for a person with no prior criminal record who commits an assault causing no permanent injury, with no other charges, in Nebraska, is 0-10 days in jail. He got 30, and now 60.

  19. bigwii says: Dec 5, 2013 5:29 PM

    Actually legally if a pice officer doesn’t announce himself or is not in uniform it can not be assault on a police officer, which is why in the first place it was so severe. Also, he got pushed while in a brawl and that is not directly assaulting someone. He got screwed over a little bit. If it was just an assault case he would not of had such a serious punishment anyway.

  20. athwartships says: Dec 5, 2013 5:30 PM

    “After the season” is laughable. Do the crime, do the time…..later?

    Sentanced or not….the delay is corruption of the system. There is no legitmet reason for it if they are a citizen like anyone else.

  21. bigwii says: Dec 5, 2013 5:33 PM

    Not to mention he’s innocent until proven guilty, for the Pats haters it’s guilty and still guilty even after proven innocent just like with everything else.

    He passed every DUI test, and pushed a guy in a brawl who happened to be a cop. The “DUI” came in the same town where he got off the charge of “hitting” a cop, what a coincidence.

    What a terrible person haha GO PATS!

    Gödel will wear blinders on this one. How many people break parole can wait five more weeks to do the time.

    You’re distorting the facts so you can sound self righteous. He didn’t just haul off an “assault somebody” without provocation and with prior intent.

    Yeah, he wasn’t smart getting into an altercation with some random person at the club he was drinking in, but this wasn’t some heinous assault that ruined a person’s life. He popped the cop in the heat of the moment when he was drunk and gave him a bloody lip.

    When I was Dennard’s age the cop would just have took his nightstick upside the guy’s head and not even bothered arresting him.

    So why don’t you grow up and look at the incident with a bit of perspective not colored by hating the Pats. Many young guys get into fist fights without going to jail at all.

    Bob Kraft was “duped” again

    But ummmm let him play out the season so we can try and win just 1 post spygate Super Bowl.
