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.
