It is one thing to have a drug addiction.
It is another thing when your drug addiction lands you in jail and destroys your NFL career. That is the case of Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly who is about to find out that his life was much better without the Sizzurp.
Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly has been sentenced to six years in prison for violating the terms of his probation on a drug charge.
Judge Denise Bradley sentenced the player Thursday despite his tearful plea for another chance.
Jolly was charged with possession of a compound containing codeine and tampering with evidence after a traffic stop in October. It was his third drug arrest in three years. The arrest violated the terms of probation Jolly received in April as part of a deal that wiped out a previous charge and spared him prison time.
You can’t keep tempting fate.
Was the sentence too harsh? Maybe, Jolly isn’t a violent offender I have seen people with assault with deadly weapon charges get less time, but it is hard to feel sorry for him based on his history.
Hopefully while in jail Jolly gets clean and comes out a better person.
