Former Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner sentenced to 8 years in prison

Brandon Browner was arrested in July for allegedly breaking into the Southern California home of his ex-girlfriend and threatening to kill her

According to TMZ, Browner pleaded no contest to a count of attempted murder and two counts of willful child endangerment, but charges for allegedly stealing the woman's $20,000 Rolex and false imprisonment were dropped.

"The former Seattle Seahawks star - an original member of the famed Legion of Boom defense - was accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment in La Verne, CA on July 8 and allegedly chased her, dragged her and then smothered her in a carpet". He was later arrested and has been in custody since July. Her two children were present when the alleged abuse occurred.

Police said the victim had a restraining order against Browner and this isn't the first time he has been arrested for domestic violence.

On Tuesday he was sentenced to eight years in prison for those charges, according to TMZ Sports.

Donald Trump Warns China: 'I Am a Tariff Man'
Xi gave Trump the opportunity to claim a victory without committing China to anything specific other than talking for 90 days. But Kudlow acknowledged on Tuesday that so far they haven't seen any evidence of concrete steps being taken.

It escalated, police said, with Browner physically harming and threatening to kill the woman, who he was previously in a relationship with. Alongside Darrelle Revis, Browner helped New England defeat his old team in Super Bowl XLIX.

Browner played just five seasons in the National Football League, but managed to assemble an impressive resume: two Super Bowl championships, one Pro-Bowl appearance and 12 interceptions.

Browner, who also played at Oregon State and had a brief stint with Denver in 2005-06 before heading to the CFL, was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2011 season.
