In yet another example of pro athletes just minding their own business and being persecuted because their famous and for no other reason at all, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry was sentenced to two days in jail this morning for allowing underage girls to drink in his hotel room. (If you remember the original story, it could have been much worse.) The sentencing judge minced few words.
"You brought shame with this on yourself," District Judge Doug Grothaus said. "You embarrassed a lot of people." Grothaus told Henry he was "a cancer" with no respect for himself, his teammates or the community. "Mr. Henry, it's time to grow up," said Grothaus.
If you think that's harsh, you should have seen what would have happened if Henry had committed the crimes in Georgia.
Henry was escorted directly to jail, where he will serve his two days, enough time for him to rehabilitate and obviously never get in trouble again.
