Ex-Cowboy Josh Brent gets 180 days in jail, 10 years of probation for DUI fatality

Today former Cowboy and Illini DT Josh Brent was sentenced to ten years of probation and 180 days in jail for the “intoxication manslaughter” of former teammate Jerry Brown.

As I noted in my blog post a couple of days ago, Brent had the support of Brown’s mother, Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones and most of his former teammates.

This sentence was handed down by a Texas jury, which heard five witnesses from the State, including an Illinois State Trooper who arrested Brent for DUI in 2009 and a jail official who testified that Brent tested positive for marijuana while on bond.
