Brandon Browner sentenced to 8 years in prison for attempted murder


The former National Football League quarterback was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison after pleading no contest in his attempted murder case, TMZ Sports reported.

Brandon Browner, 34, was arrested in July after police say he broke into the La Verne home of his ex-girlfriend and attacked her, at one point dragging her back into the apartment as she tried to escape.

The judge ordered Browner to stay away from the victim and her two children for 10 years.

According to TMZ, Browner's plea resulted in robbery, burglary and false imprisonment charges being dropped. He was later arrested and has been in custody since July. The former New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints star also stole the woman's Rolex watch before fleeing the scene.
