Packers DL Jolly sentenced to six years in prison.
HOUSTON - 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.
Jolly started for the Packers in 2008 and 2009. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in July 2010 and did not play for the team last year when it won the Super Bowl.

I think he deserves another 10 more chances.
Thank god they put this cough syrup addict behind bars though while the pedophile is out of jail and people like Lohan spend 1/1000th of the time they're supposed to behind bars. Our legal system is beyond being a joke at this point.
They don't give 3rd and 4th chances in Texas like they do the NFL Johnny. They don't care if you can stuff the run or rush the passer unless you happen to be playing in Austin.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap. Honey Badger Don't Care. Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit.
F right off !
Almost everyone deserves a second chance. Some under narrow circumstances - a third.
But no one, NO ONE, deserves the chance to avoid accountability.
You had your numerous shots, Jolly, now suck it up. It's obvious you know how.
