BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and 24 months of probation for each charge stemming from an April 2012 arrest.

According to Lori Pilger of The Lincoln Journal Star, Dennard’s 30 day sentence will begin March 31, 2014.

Dennard will also have to serve 100 of community service, but he will be credited for three days of jail time served. The two 24-month probation periods are to be served concurrently, but he will be able to travel back and forth from Nebraska to New England for work . Any other travel will need approval by the court.

There is a chance the NFL could suspend Dennard, but it’s unclear if the league will take any action for an incident that occurred while he was still in college. For now, it doesn’t appear his NFL career will be affected by the sentencing.

Dennard was found guilty of assault on a police officer and resisting arrest in February stemming from the altercation last April.  Then a standout player at Nebraska, he was reportedly out celebrating with friends and family leading up to the 2012 NFL draft when an altercation with another college student, Ben Samani, occurred. When police responded, Dennard punched police officer Ben Kopsa as he was trying to arrest Dennard.

The Patriots drafted Dennard in the seventh round of last year’s NFL draft after his stock dropped drastically following the arrest. He played in 10 games for New England in his rookie season, contributing three interceptions, a fumble recovery and a touchdown.
