NFL: Former Cowboys Player Josh Brent Sentenced To 180 Days For Crash That Killed Teammate

Former Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent was sentence this morning to 180 days in jail and 10 years probation for causing the death of his former teammate Jerry Brown. Brent was convicted this past Wednesday of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash on a suburban Dallas highway that killed Brown, who was a passenger in Brent’s car. Brent could have been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. Brent by no means seems like a bad person, he just made a bad decision. His alcohol level the night of the crash was 0.18, which is twice more than the legal limit in Texas. The Brown family has been very forgiving of Brent, as they have known him for years, even prior to being teammates with their son in Dallas. This is not the first time Brent was arrested for DWI. He caught a charge for the same thing back in 2009. I sincerely hope he has learned his lesson.

NFL: Ex-Cowboy Josh Brent Found Guilty of Intoxication Manslaughter

NFL:(Video) SMH, Cowboys Player May Be Headed Back To Jail Permanently

I hope this isn’t true, because if it is, this dude needs to be smacked. Cowboys tackle Josh Brent who is currently free on $100,000 bond after being charged back in December with involuntary manslaughter in the death of his close friend and teammate Jerry Brown, may lose his bond as early as today. In the accident that killed his friend, Brent was driving drunk and that was the major factor in the crash. Along with his bond, Brent had a alcohol monitoring device installed in his car by order of the court. Well this week, that device detected alcohol in Brent’s system which is a huge no-no with the terms of his bond. Now according to a source, Brent did not drink any alcohol, and says the device has gone off in the past as well when Brent was not drinking. Sounds sketchy. Brent is due in court this morning regarding this. There is a very good chance he will have his bond revoked and be sent to jail until his trial. I sincerely hope after the death he caused, that he is smart enough to never touch alcohol again. Check out the video after the jump.

NFL: Autopsy Shows Jerry Brown Was Sober In Crash That Killed Him

This news just makes this tragedy even more sad. The autopsy that was done on former Dallas Cowboys player Jerry Brown after the accident on December 8th that killed him, showed he was sober. This is such big news because his teammate and best friend Josh Brent, also of the Cowboys has been charged with manslaughter in the accident because he was driving drunk that night. Unlike many people, I feel for Brent because according to anyone who spoke on his behalf, he is a really good guy that just made a stupid decision that night. It hurts even more to know he is responsible for the death of his best friend. The 2 players knew each other for years and went to the same college and was very close then as well. The only question is why didn’t Jerry Brown drive that night if he was sober. It is a question I am sure Josh Brent and others will ask themselves for a long time. IamJOE357
