No word on how Gotti Goodell is going to handle this, but for now Benson’s Lawyers did a decent job to make sure he didn’t spend a long time in jail.
The Big Lead has the details.
Cedric Benson, the starting running back of the Cincinnati Bengals, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to 20 days in jail. Assistant Travis County Attorney Corby Holcomb – what a great Texas name that is – said Benson will probably only spend a week in jail due to good behavior.
This incident was a bar fight where Benson claimed a bunch of white guys jumped him. He still has a case out for beating up his roommate.
Good to see the Bengals are cleaning up their roster.
