Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard reports to jail to begin serving sentence for assault
|03.01.14 at 2:37 pm ET|
Alfonzo Dennard reported to a Lincoln, Neb., jail on Saturday to begin his 60-day term for a 2012 assault on a police officer, according to the Associated Press.
According to corrections officers with the Lincoln facility, the 24-year-old Dennard was at the Lancaster County Adult Detention Facility Saturday morning. After credit for good behavior and the three days he’s already spent in jail, he will have to serve at least 35 days in the wake of the incident involving a police officer outside a Lincoln bar, which took place days before the 2012 draft.
In April, a judge sentenced Dennard to two years’ probation, 30 days in jail and community service for the 2012 incident. However, the judge later extended his probation to three years and doubled the jail time after Dennard was again arrested in Lincoln in July, this time on suspicion of drunken driving. That charge was later dismissed in exchange for Dennard’s no contest plea for refusing to submit to a chemical test. He was fined $500 and placed on probation for the incident.
