Jerome Simpson sentenced to 15 days after plea agreement - [Full Article]

A Kentucky judge sentenced former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson to 15 days in jail and three years of probation on drug-related charges.

Simpson reportedly had two pounds of marijuana shipped to his home last September, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Simpson pleaded guilty on March 1 in Kenton County Circuit Court to the charge where prosecutors recommended a 60-day jail stay as part of the plea agreement.

Simpson was originally indicted on a felony charge of marijuana trafficking, but as part of the plea deal the charge was changed to a prohibited act relating to controlled substances, also a felony.

Fantasy Impact: 

Simpson is a talented WR, but he's clearly a knucklehead. Perhaps this will serve as a wake up call as he tries to find a job for the 2012 season.
