Former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent was sentenced Friday to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probations for the intoxicated manslaughter murder of teammate and friend Jerry Brown. Brent was also given 10 years of probation. Per ESPN,
quote:

Brent was convicted Wednesday of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash on a suburban Dallas highway that killed Brown, who was a passenger in Brent's car. Brent could have been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.
Brent and Brown were both part of the Cowboys practice squad, and also played together at Illinois. They were headed home from a night of partying when Brent lost control of his car and crashed. Officers arrived on scene and saw Brent trying to pull Brown's body from the wreckage. Here is what Brown's Mother had to say:
quote:

Brown's mother, Stacey Jackson, also has publicly forgiven Brent. When asked Thursday if she holds Brent responsible for her son's death, she said: "He's still responsible, but you can't go on in life holding a grudge. We all make mistakes."
