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.
