The verdict is in on Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, and now he will await his sentencing.
Early Wednesday morning, a jury found Dennard guilty of assault on a police officer and resisting arrest in Nebraska, stemming from an altercation last April. When the trial began earlier this month, there were conflicting reports as to what happened that night outside of a bar in Lincoln. Now that the jury has reached a verdict, Dennard will wait until April to learn his fate.
