Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly has been sentenced to six years in prison for violating probation.
Jolly was on probation for a drug charge and violated the terms of his probation when he was arrested in October for possession of the drug known as "purple drank". The arrest was Jolly's third drug related arrest in three years.
Judge Denise Bradley refused Jolly's tearful apology and plea for another chance and sentenced him to six years in prison.
Jolly, 28, played for the Packers in 2008 and 2009, he did not play for the Packers in their Super Bowl winning season last year. At the time of the sentencing, Jolly was indefinitely suspended by the NFL.
