Suspended Packers Lineman Johnny Jolly Sentenced to Six Years in Prison

Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly, who hasn’t played for the Packers since being suspended indefinitely by the NFL in July of 2010, was sentenced to six years in prison after violating the terms of his probation.

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.

As Eminem once aptly stated, “Next time you show restraint, You don’t get another chance, Life is no Nintendo game.” Unfortunately, it sounds as though Marshall Mathers is not part of Jolly’s regular musical rotation.
