Warning: waste of talent ahead.


HOUSTON -- Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly was sentenced to six years in prison Thursday for violating the terms of his probation for a drug conviction.

State District Judge Denise Bradley imposed the sentence despite tearful pleas from Jolly and his mother, Phyllis Jolly, to allow the 6-foot-3, 325-pound lineman to be treated for his addiction to codeine instead of going to prison. Jolly's aunt, agent and drug counselor also testified on his behalf.

"I want to go to rehab to get help," Jolly told the judge as he wiped away tears with a tissue.

Jolly, 28, 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.

The arrest put Jolly in jeopardy of receiving prison time because in April he had pleaded guilty to a codeine possession charge in a deal that wiped out an earlier charge and spared him from prison unless he stumbled again.

After the hearing, Jolly's attorney, Letitia Quinones, told The Associated Press that the player spent eight weeks in court-ordered rehab after his second arrest, but has only recently faced up to his codeine addiction.

"I don't look at Johnny as a criminal," Quinones said. "I look at him as an addict."

Jolly, who grew up in Houston, 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.

Six years for codeine? Did he have a bad cough or migranes?

Damn, Mr. Jolly. I think you chose poorly when it came to attorneys.

6 years for codeine possession is ridiculous.

Maybe he'll still be a Packer in jail.

meanwhile you can kill a baby and not go to jail if you play your cards right.

6 years for that is fucking stupid. Especially when that is the same amount of time given for a DUI manslaughter.

Apparently codeine is equal to killing someone in the eyes of the judicial system.

He's been arrested 3 times in the past 4 years for Sizzurp.

What a dumbass.

how did he become addicted to it? stupid idiot drug use? or did a DR prescribe him too much of it?

11-17-2011, 06:40 PM
That shit's been huge for a long time in Houston.

11-17-2011, 06:46 PM
Him and JaMarcus been chillin'?

11-17-2011, 06:57 PM
Addicted to Codeine? WTF?

She was kinda cute. The jury didn't want to convict her because that would slam the door on any possibility of her getting kinky with them.

It's basic logic. Big scary black guy drinking cough syrup? We don't want to engage in sex with that. Crazy but cute Casey Anthony who kills her baby? Let's keep our options open.

You know...
I think we can go ahead and delete the Denise Smilie, don't ya'll think?

A very small contingent of CP knows wtf it's all about anyway.

How does someone get 6 years for doing a drug? Wow.

Codeine is an opiate. Gee, that's what the shit is all about. The feds don't like lotus eaters, or suckers.
