DALLAS, Texas -- A former Dallas Cowboy and Bloomington football player has received a ten year suspended sentence, in connection with a fiery crash that killed his Cowboy’s teammate.
Josh Brent was found guilty of intoxication manslaughter this week for the December 2012 death of Jerry Brown Jr.
Jurors took nine hours over two days to decide on the guilty verdict.
Brent had a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit in Texas at the time of the crash.
As part of the ten year suspended sentence, Brent must serve 180 days in prison.
