Alfonzo Dennard given 30-day jail term

LINCOLN, Neb. — The sentencing for Alfonzo Dennard was essentially the best-case scenario. On Thursday, the Patriots cornerback was given 24 months of probation, a 30-day jail sentence to be served next March, and 100 hours of “law enforcement-related” community service.

Dennard was found guilty in February of third-degree felony assault on a police officer and misdemeanor resisting arrest, charges from an April 21, 2012, incident in downtown Lincoln.
