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. Four years later, he's been sentenced to eight years in prison.
Along with breaking into the home and forcing the victim to stay, Browner allegedly dipped off from the scene before police got there with a Rolex watch worth about $20,000. In exchange, the remaining charges (robbery, burglary and false imprisonment) were dropped.
Browner had a previous relationship with the victim and had been arrested for domestic violence against her earlier this year.
He later was caught, arrested and charged with attempted murder. Her two children were reportedly present at the time of the alleged incident.
