Ex-Patriot Brandon Browner Reportedly Gets Eight Years In Attempted Murder Case

Former Patriots CB Brandon Browner sentenced to 8 years in prison (Report)

A former National Football League player for the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison after pleading no contest to charges of attempted murder, prosecutors said.

He pleaded no contest to felony attempted murder and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child. The charges stemmed from a July incident in California where Browner allegedly broke into the apartment of his ex-girlfriend and assaulted her.

Police said Browner prevented the woman from leaving, dragged her, and attempted to smother her in a vehicle while her two children were present. He's been in custody since the arrest back in July.

According to TMZ, Browner's plea resulted in robbery, burglary and false imprisonment charges being dropped.

He has previously been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and the woman had a restraining order against him, authorities said at the time of his arrest.

Brandon Browner finds himself in even deeper, murkier waters after an attempted murder charge was tacked onto his other charges stemming from his July 8 arrest.

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. He had spent three seasons as a member of the Legion of Boom in Seattle prior to that, and he played one season in New Orleans after leaving the Patriots. The following year he won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots against his former team.
