Ex-Broncos player guilty of cocaine trafficking

By  | 

Former NFL running back Travis Henry has pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine in a federal drug case that could land him in prison for 10 years or more.

Henry admitted to a single count of conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute during an appearance in federal court in Billings, Mont., today.

He was arrested in Denver last October after authorities broke apart a drug ring that trafficked cocaine between Colorado and Montana.

U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull accepted the guilty plea and set a July 15 sentencing date. Two other cocaine trafficking charges were dropped under a deal worked out with prosecutors.

Henry will remain free on $400,000 bond.
