Former Seattle Seahawk cornerback Brandon Browner, once a prominent part of the “Legion of Boom” secondary, has been sentenced to eight years in California state prison.
According to TMZ Sports, the 34-year old Browner pled no contest to one count of attempted murder and two counts of child endangerment in his sentencing hearing on Tuesday. In exchange for his pleas, other charges, including robbery and burglary among others, were dropped.
Browner broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment on in La Verne, CA back in late July and allegedly chased her, dragged her on the ground, and suffocated her in a carpet. While these heinous crimes took place, both of her children were present in the home.
Among other accusations, the woman claimed he stole her Rolex watch and he fled the residence hoping to avoid getting caught by the police. Later apprehended, he faced life in prison after being charged with attempted murder along with his other crimes.
Reports indicate Browner received credit for 300 days for time already spent behind bars, as he’s been in custody since his arrest back in July. If he serves his entire sentence, he would be eligible for release in 2026.
Browner played three seasons with the Seahawks, reaching the Pro Bowl in 2011 and winning a Super Bowl ring in 2013. He would later win a second ring the following season with the Patriots before finishing his career with a one-year stint with the Saints.
