Ex-Patriot Brandon Browner Reportedly Gets Eight Years In Attempted Murder Case

Brandon Browner

According to gossip website TMZ, former Calgary Stampeder Brandon Browner has pled no contest to attempted murder and has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Browner, 34, was accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's La Verne, Calif., apartment in July, chasing and dragging her around before smothering her in a carpet.

Browner, a native of Sylmar in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, was arrested on drug charges in October and for allegedly making criminal threats in September.

Children were present during the attack, so charges for willful child endangerment were added on top of the attempted murder.

Brandon Browner, who played with the Seahawks, Patriots and Saints, reportedly was sentenced to eight years in prison.

Browner was arrested within hours of the incident in La Verne, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles. In exchange, the remaining charges (robbery, burglary and false imprisonment) were dropped. He teamed with Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas to form what quickly became one of the best secondaries in the National Football League, dubbed the Legion of Boom.

Browner had a previous relationship with the victim and had been arrested for domestic violence against her earlier this year. The police noted once Browner was in the house, he allegedly forced the victim back into her home after she tried to run from the house.

He was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2011 and was an original member of Seattle's Legion of Boom defense.
