NFL | Chad Johnson sentenced to 30 days in jail

Free-agent WR Chad Johnson was sentenced to 30 days in jail Monday, June 10, for a probation violation in his domestic violence case. His legal side had reached a deal with prosecutors for community service and counseling instead of jail time. After a deal was supposedly in place, he was asked by the judge whether he approved of his lawyer, and Johnson then gave his lawyer a tap on the backside, in the football parlance of approval. This angered the judge, who insisted Johnson wasn't taking the proceedings seriously before rescinding the plea deal and handing down the jail sentence.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of how this ends, his personal problems may derail any chance of returning to the NFL for the 2013 season. Even if he does, fantasy owners shouldn't rush to test whether he can still be effective.
