The six years was sort of steep just for sipping on the sizzurp.
Jolly wasn’t a drug dealer or running some sort of cartel out of his basement, so I can understand why the judge let him out of jail.
A Texas judge has granted former Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly his request for early release, just six months into a six-year prison sentence.
The judge gave Jolly what is known as “shock probation,” which is granted when an offender convinces a judge that he was shocked into turning his life around by spending a short period of time in prison. Jolly will remain on probation for 10 years and will have to serve 200 hours of community service.
Hopefully, the jail time really did shock him and he stays clean going forward.
