Cowboys News: Josh Brent Sentenced To Ten Years Probation

Rod Marinelli and Monte Kiffin would be excited to see this in July in Oxnard. - Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Josh Brent received the sentence for his intoxication manslaughter conviction on Friday Morning.

After being convicted of Intoxication Manslaughter on Wednesday for the 2012 auto crash that took the life of his teammate and best friend Jerry Brown Jr., Josh Brent sat again before the jury in the court room Friday morning to hear his sentence. There was much speculation about how much of the potential 20 year maximum prison sentence he would serve or whether he would receive probation. The judge in the case sentenced Josh Brent to 10 years probation, accompanied by the mandatory 180 days in jail (it remains to be seen whether he will receive credit for time served).

Now that we know the punishment for his crime, some people are debating the future of this currently retired Dallas Cowboy.

Mike Fisher provides an insightful take...

As Fish alludes, all of this speculation about Brent playing in 2014 is dependent on what type of punishment is handed down to Brent from commissioner Roger Goodell's office. However, I'm sure Jerry Jones & Co. would argue that he's already served a 20 game suspension, and that the punishment should be reduced.
