Scottsdale, Arizona – September 7, 2007. Jerramy Stevens, former Seahawk and now Buccaneer, took his DUI case to trial on September 5, 2007. After two days the DUI trial concluded and the jury returned a verdict of guilty.
Jerramy will have a sentencing date in the near future, but we do know the State of Arizona imposes mandatory DUI penalties. Since Jerramy had a previous DUI reduced to Reckless Driving in 2003, and his Scottsdale DUI recorded a BAC of 0.204 he faces a minimum of 30 days in jail. Jerramy was lucky this happened in Arizona. Washington State’s mandatory DUI penalties would require a minimum of 45 days in jail.
There is no word on how the NFL will handle the DUI conviction, but Stevens may face league consequences.
