Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard released from Nebraska jail
After serving 35 days of a 60-day sentence, Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is a free man.
On Friday, Dennard -- who had violated his probation last summer, more than a year after his conviction on charges of assaulting a police officer -- was released from the Lancaster County jail, according to the Lincoln Journal Star (via the Boston Herald). He was originally sentenced to 60 days in jail, but he only served 35 for good behavior.
Dennard was convicted of assaulting a police officer in April 2012, shortly before Dennard was to be drafted, and he was sentenced to 30 days in jail. But Dennard was arrested for DUI last summer, a violation of his probation, and the court gave him additional jail time for his trouble.
And he was left with a warning by Judge Stephanie Stacy at the time. Said Stacy: "I want you to know this is your last chance."
Now, Dennard can get back to work. The Patriots' offseason workouts begin April 21 with OTAs starting May 27.
