Former Stampeder Brandon Browner sentenced to eight years for attempted murder

Former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner was sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading no contest in his attempted murder case, according to a report from TMZ. Her two children were present.

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

In the past two years, he has been arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, child endangerment and possessing cocaine. He would later be charged with four felonies, including attempted murder.

Browner was immediately remanded into custody following his plea.

Police officers answered call on Sunday, July 8 after they were told a man broke into a home through a locked window in Los Angeles County.

Browner, who won Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, was arrested in July. Prosecutors had accused Browner of stealing a $10,000 rolex watch from the apartment. Browner was sentenced then to one day in jail, three years of probation, 48 hours of community service and an order requesting him to stay away from the victims for three years. The following year he won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots against his former team. He teamed with Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas to form what quickly became one of the best secondaries in the National Football League, dubbed the Legion of Boom.

Browner was a member of the Calgary Stampeders for five seasons beginning in 2006.
