The saints said they were comfortable signing with Carl Granderson, an unsupported rookie, despite a pending trial for sexual assault, but a Wyoming judge was not at liberty. comfortable with the terms of a plea agreement concluded by Granderson with prosecutors to avoid this lawsuit.
Granderson agreed not to plead in his favor against a sexual battery leader and an unlawful contact leader with a recommended one-year probation of unsupervised probation and a mental assessment to be completed within 60 days. the Casper Star-Tribune reports that the district court judge, Tori Kricken, however, rejected this part of the deal and sentenced Granderson to six months' imprisonment immediately.
The penalty relates to the accusation of unlawful contact. There was also a one-year suspended sentence for the charge of sexual assault and one year of probation under supervision once Granderson had completed his six months in prison.
Granderson was arrested and escorted out of the courtroom at the end of the proceedings. His lawyer had no comment for the reporters.
Serving throughout the six month period would ensure that it would be impossible for Granderson to play for the Saints or for anyone else during the 2019 season. So it seems likely that New Orleans will release her substitute seat for someone who will be available for the training camp later this month. .
