Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was convicted Wednesday of third degree assault of a police officer stemming from an incident outside a Nebraska bar before the 2012 NFL Draft.
Dennard was accused of punching an officer in the jaw. Besides the assault charge, Dennard was also found guilty of resisting arrest. He was acquitted of a misdemeanor charge of assaulting another person.
Dennard, a 7th round pick, now faces up to six years in prison. With or without jail time, he will most certainly be suspended by the NFL.
Now, the Patriots have to look for even more help in the secondary.
