Dennard Pleaded No Contest | Sentenced to Probation & License Revoked

More trouble for Afonzo Dennard after he appeared in Lancaster County Court Friday.

The former Husker pleaded no contest to refusing to submit to a chemical test. The judge found him guilty and sentenced Dennard to three months probation. It will run concurrently with his 3 year probation. As part of a plea deal, prosecution dropped the DUI charge.

Dennard also has to pay a $500 fine and won't be allowed to drive for 60 days.

According to police, Dennard was pulled over for straddling the lane lines near 52nd and Normal Blvd. on July 11, 2013.

Officers say Dennard smelled like alcohol and showed signs of impairment.

Officers gave Dennard a field sobriety test and he was then taken to Cornhusker Place for a breath test. Dennard didn't provide a sufficient breath for the test.

Dennard was cited and released for DUI, refusing a chemical test and straddling lane lines.

In April, the former Husker football player was sentenced to 30 days in jail plus 24 months probation for his part in a police assault case.

According to court records, the first requirement as part of his probation states he "Shall not violate any laws and shall refrain from disorderly conduct or acts injurious to others."

A jury found the New England Patriots' cornerback guilty of assaulting a Lincoln police officer and resisting arrest in February. Prosecutors say that assault happened during the early morning hours of April 21, 2012.

For breaking his probation, a judge sentenced Dennard to 60 days in jail and extended his probation to 3 years.
