Former SFL star Brandon Browner Receives 8-Year Prison Sentence for Attempted Murder
The one-time member of Seattle’s vaunted Legion of Boom defense pleaded no contest to the charges that stemmed from an incident where he allegedly attempted to smother his ex-girlfriend in a carpet on July 8.
The prosecution said Browner broke into her apartment, and chased her and dragged her before attempting to kill her. Browner made off with the woman’s Rolex before being picked up by police. His charges of attempted murder, robbery, burglary, false imprisonment, and willful child endangerment carried with them a potential sentence of life in prison.
Browner pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder and two counts of endangerment as part of a deal that dropped the charges related to theft and false imprisonment.
Per TMZ, Browner was immediately remanded into custody and was back behind bars following the sentencing. While Browner has only been imprisoned since July, the sentencing judge gave him credit for 300 days of time served due to good behavior.
During his years in the NFL as a cornerback for the Broncos, Seahawks, Saints, and Patriots, Browner was elected to the Pro Bowl once and was a member of two Super Bowl-winning teams. He won with the Seahawks in 2014 and played for the Patriots when they bested the Seahawks the next year.
