Kenoy Kennedy Sentenced to Probation for Drunk Driving

Lions safety Kenoy Kennedy was sentenced to 18 months of probation for a drunk driving arrest occurring back in October.  Kennedy was pulled over in the early hours of October 6th and was found to have a blood-alcohol level of .16, twice the legal limit in Michigan.  The safety pleaded guilty and found out that his sentence would be the probation mentioned above, a $500 fine, 5 days of community service, and an order to enter Alcoholics Anonymous.

"It's something that I never want to do again," Kennedy said Friday. "And I'll go back and tell everyone I know, 'Get a limo.' You live and learn and, unfortunately, I had to learn this way."

Kennedy did face up to a possible 93 days in jail but avoided that by having his lawyer ask for leniency and mentioning that this is the first offense Kennedy has ever had.  Plus, Kenoy had already entered a program to help his drinking.
