Saints' Carl Granderson Sentenced to 6 Months in Jail on Sexual Assault Charges

New Orleans Saints defensive end Carl Granderson was sentenced to six months in jail Thursday after being accused of inappropriately touching two women.

According toDavis Potterof the Casper Star-Tribune, the ruling comes after Granderson had reached an agreement with prosecutors on a plea deal, which would have included one year of unsupervised probation. After previously pleading not guilty, Granderson opted to plead no-contest to one count of sexual battery and one count of unlawful contact, per Potter.

District court judge Tori Kricken, however, rejected the terms of the plea deal on Thursday.
