Patriots’ Alfonzo Dennard Was A Model Citizen During His Month In Jail

Alfonzo Dennard, LaVon BrazillNew England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was released from jail after serving the minimum 35-day sentence because he was a model citizen.

Dennard was granted medical releases from Lancaster County Department of Corrections in Nebraska to rehab injuries from the 2013 Patriots season, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported Friday. Dennard dealt with shoulder and ankle injuries last season.

“Unremarkable, did nothing, didn’t cause any problems with us,” Mike Thurber, director of the Lancaster County Department of Corrections, told the Boston Herald. “(Dennard) did his time as prescribed by the courts and has been released.”

Dennard served time in jail after violating probation in July. He originally was arrested in April 2012 for assaulting a police officer, and he violated probation after being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence in July 2013.

Dennard spent his time in jail in a dorm with 23 other inmates, who slept on 12 bunk beds.

“The dorm is an open area, so they’re there 24 hours a day,” Thurber told the Herald. “There’s no cell lockdown. It’s a dormitory open setting. They do come out to have meals. It’s a little different than most jails. It’s a newer facility where they come out and have a dining area. The food is brought to them, and they eat there. There’s no lockdown individual cells.”
