Jolly receives a 6 year prison term


Johnny Jolly, 28, is no stranger to run ins with the law...the law finally caught up according to a story on Yahoo today. Despite pleas from Johnny and his mother, the court came down hard on Jolly with a 6 year prison sentance. The news shouldn't be a shocker as he has been in trouble numerous times now despite a seemingly promising professional career. He was a promising 2 year starter for the Packers but this in effect ends his hopes of ever playing in the pros again. Its a shame to see a young person give up such a bright future and opportunity to succeed and get out of a rough past. He'll be a warning sign to the young kids coming into the league to leave their past in the past...

Jolly  was charged with possession of a compound containing codeine, a controlled substance, after a traffic stop in Houston in October. He also was charged with tampering with evidence for attempting to conceal the substance from the investigating officers. Jolly’s truck was pulled over after he was seen throwing a bag out the window. The bag wasn’t recovered, but Jolly was seen dumping a cup believed to contain codeine on the floor. Two bottles believed to contain codeine were recovered from the vehicle.

Jolly grew up in Houston and was a sixth-round draft pick of the Packers in 2006 after playing at Texas A&M. He was a starter for the Packers in 2008 and 2009. However, he sat out the 2010 season after being suspended by the NFL indefinitely the previous July.
