Ex-NFL Player Brandon Browner Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison

Brandon Browner

Browner pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder and two counts of willful child endangerment in exchange for other charges of robbery, burglary and false imprisonment being dropped.

The 34-year old has been in custody since his arrest back in July and did receive credit for 300 days already served.

Police say he left, but not before he took a Rolex watch valued at about $20,000.

Those charges stemmed from an incident in Pomona, California, on May 6 involving Browner and Marin Foster, the mother of two of his children. Browner fled the scene but was later arrested without further incident.

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

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

After a stint in the CFL, Browner rose to National Football League prominence as a member of the Seattle Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" defense from 2011-2013.

NBC Los Angeles reports that Browner had a previous relationship with the victim and had previously been arrested for domestic violence and was restrained from the victim, according to police. Once inside the house, Browner "allegedly physically harmed and made threats to kill the victim inside the residence".

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