Second Guilty Plea In Ex-NFL Player Drug Case

By  | 

A co-defendant in a federal drug case involving former NFL running back Travis Henry has pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine.

Thirty-year-old James Mack of Bow Mar, Colo., will be sentenced July 24 on a single count of conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine.

Two other charges were dropped in a plea deal worked out with prosecutors.

Authorities in Denver arrested Mack and Henry in October after investigators found 6 pounds of marijuana and about 6.6 pounds of cocaine that Henry and Mack supplied for distribution in the Billings area.

Henry, who last week pleaded guilty to the same charge as Mack, is scheduled to be sentenced July 15. Each man faces potential penalties of 10 years to life in prison and a $4 million fine.
