Wow! This guy is in big trouble.

Just to give you an insight to UK sentencing. I reckon this guy would be called up in front of the judge and he would be given a suspended community service charge.

I would be surprised if this guy really gets any prison time for this. However, there is a lot of this going on, and this may be seen as an opportunity to make an example out of this guy. My best guess is he will get something like a one year suspended sentence, about five years of probation, something like a $20,000 fine, then a big time lawsuit from the NFL. In any event, not a pretty picture for this guy.
