According to the Arizona Republic, troubled Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Jerramy Stevens was sentenced to 12 days in jail and fined $3,160 for his March 2007 arrest on drunken driving and other violations. As would be expected, Stevens’ attorney is expected to appeal the sentence. Stevens could have received 30 days in jail, but 18 of those days were suspended since Stevens is attending an NFL-required rehabilitation program.
This isn’t the first time that Stevens has run afoul of the law; in 2003, Stevens, while a Seattle Seahawk, faced DUI charges. 2 years prior, he had been charged with hit-and-run after his vehicle crashed into a Seattle retirement home.
