Patriots' Dennard guilty of assaulting officer

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - New England Patriots rookie and former Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has been convicted of assaulting a police officer in Lincoln, Neb., last year.

Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly says a jury found Dennard guilty Wednesday of the felony charge and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest. The jury found Dennard not guilty of third-degree assault against another man.

He faces up to six years in prison on the two convictions when he's sentenced April 11.

Dennard was arrested April 21 outside a bar in Lincoln, accused of punching a police officer in the face during a fight. The fight occurred five days before the 2012 NFL draft. The Patriots took Dennard, who was the 2011 Big Ten defensive back of the year, in the seventh round.
