Green Bay Packers Lineman Jolly Gets Probation in Plea Deal

by

HOUSTON, Tex. (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to a drug possession charge. 

Jolly had faced up to 20 years in prison if convicted of possessing at least 200 grams of codeine following a 2008 arrest. 

Now after striking a deal with prosecutors, Jolly is given 5 years of deferred adjudication on that charge and ordered to undergo drug treatment for 90 days. 

His latest arrest came last month in Houston.

Jolly's probation sentence allows the conviction to be removed from his record, as long as he stays out of trouble.

ESPN.com reports Jolly plans to undergo treatment at a Houston facility run by former NBA player and coach John Lucas, who was at Thursday's court hearing.

Jolly's attorney is hopeful the Texas A&M product can be reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
