Former Seattle Seahawks star, Brandon Browner, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for attempted murder in connection to a domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend.
In the incident, according to TMZ, Browner allegedly broke into the woman’s La Verne apartment on July 8, chased her, dragged her and then smothered her in a carpet, all while her two children were present. He then allegedly jacked the woman’s Rolex and fled the scene.
Shortly after, Browner was arrested and charged with attempted murder.
Now, after four months behind bars, Browner has pleaded no contest to 1 count of attempted murder and two counts of willful child endangerment, and in exchange, Browner’s burglary and false imprisonment charges were dropped.
As a result, the former baller, who won Super Bowls with both the Seahawks and the New England Patriots, was sentenced to eight years with a 300-day credit for good behavior during his time in custody.
