Henry gets 3 years in cocaine case

By  | 

Former NFL player Travis Henry has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for financing a drug trafficking operation that moved cocaine between Denver and Billings.

Henry, 30, of Frostproof, Fla., was arrested by federal drug agents last October - just a few months after the running back's release from the Denver Broncos.

He pleaded guilty in April to a single count of trafficking cocaine. In handing down Wednesday's sentence, U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull also gave Henry five years of probation upon his
release and recommended that he enter a 500-hour drug treatment program.

Henry has said that at the time of his arrest, he was struggling to keep up with child support payments after fathering at least nine children with nine women.
