Jolly receives early release from prison

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

 Suspended NFL defensive lineman Johnny Jolly was released from prison today after serving six months of a six-year sentence for drug possession charges. Jolly applied for and was granted “shock probation,” which places selected convicts on probation after experiencing the shock of being in jail. Jolly, who played for the Green Bay Packers from 2006 to 2009 and was arrested four times on drug charges, must serve 10 years of probation in addition to 200 hours of community service. The NFL suspended Jolly indefinitely in 2010. He remains on the “reserve/suspended by commissioner” list, meaning the Packers still hold his rights.
