LINCOLN — Former Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard on Thursday received a 30-day jail sentence, two years probation and 100 hours of “law-enforcement related” community service for his felony assault conviction.
But the jail time — which Dennard had been lobbying to avoid after he was found guilty in February of punching a Lincoln police officer and resisting arrest — won’t interfere with his second NFL season with the New England Patriots.
