The judge who sentenced Chad Johnson to 30 days in jail has relented, after his apology and request by his attorney, and agreed to let Chad out of jail. Mr. Johnson is still on probation, and must check in and do his community service, plus whatever counseling and fines remain to be completed.
Deadspin notes that his situation is turning unfortunate, as he’s losing money, but still harbors hope of getting a shot to get back to the NFL. This latest jail stint is unlikely to facilitate that, or a job with a TV network. It’s a shame, because he had a lot of talent on the football field. #freeocho
