Denver jury finds D.J. Williams guilty of impaired driving
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 15, 2012, 8:21 PM EDT


Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams was found guilty after a one-day trial stemming from a 2010 drunk driving arrest.

A Denver County jury convicted Williams of driving while ability impaired and driving without his headlights on. Driving while ability impaired is considered a lesser offense than driving under the influence, the charge that Williams was initially arrested for. This is Williams’ second driving while ability impaired conviction in Colorado; he also pleaded guilty to the charge in 2005.

Williams’ attorney, Harvey Steinberg, requested a mistrial after a police officer testified that Williams was taken to detox and that sober people aren’t taken to detox. The judge rejected that motion, and after a short deliberation the jury delivered a verdict of guilty.

The NFL has already suspended Williams for the first six games of this season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. It is not yet known whether he will face an additional NFL suspension after this conviction.

According to the Denver Post, a driving while ability impaired conviction carries a jail sentence of at least 10 days and no more than one year.

Eh, the drunk driving itself happened two years ago, so it's not like the Broncos didn't see it coming.

I did not know that he was a 100 tackle, 5 sack a year type of player. Thought he was worse for some reason.


That makes this even better ROFL

DJ is a good player. I doubt he is suspended more than 6 games this year.

He already is suspended 6 games. Add 2-4 games for this and he's out at least half the season.

Second convicted offense getting an appeal and lesser punishment? Not going to happen.

He hasn't even appealed his 6 game suspension yet. Brandon Marshall was suspended for four games in the 2008 season and Goodell shortened it to a 1 game suspension. I can see him getting the 6 game suspension knocked down to 4 and then this ruling will give him 1 or 2.

He cant appeal the suspension. He tried to sue Goodell over it and failed.

So yeah, he's gone for half the year.

That being said, it was a ticking time bomb with an unknown detination time. I think it qualifies as a minor implosion. :) /dogpile on Donkey fans

He sued the NFL over the suspension and the lawsuit was thrown out. Do you really think the suspension will be reduced?

Was he drunk? Yes.
Was he driving? Yes.

....so why did a jury need to sit down and hear this?

For the same reason that it'll take years before a jury ever convicts James Holmes of shooting up a movie theater.
