Brett Rogers goes to jail

Brett Rogers has been sentenced to 60 days in jail for that little incident back in June where he ran his wife down outside the house and pounded her face in.

In June, Rogers, of Apple Valley, Minn., south of Minneapolis, was seen by a neighbor punching his wife outside their home, according to a criminal complaint filed against him. Police later found her walking near their home with a bloody face, missing tooth and a broken jaw. The complaint also said the Rogers’ children were scared to return home – and said Rogers had choked them in the past.

Rogers pleaded guilty to third-degree assault with substantial bodily harm, a felony, and had two other felony charges dropped, as well as a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment. After Wednesday’s sentencing, Rogers received credit for 26 days he has already served. The Pioneer-Press reported that Rogers will have to serve two-thirds of his sentence, meaning he will have 14 days left to serve, per the judge’s orders.

Rogers’ defense attorney asked for the heavyweight’s jail sentence to be postponed until after a planned Dec. 31 fight, allowing him to propertly train for the event. That request was denied, but the judge did say Rogers can travel for his job. According to records from the Dakota County Sheriff’s Department, Rogers’ anticipated release date is Dec. 13.

Ah man, what is going on with the prison system nowadays. Not enough room to hang Lindsay Lohan on a wall in shackles and now Brett Rogers is doing 14 days for whupping his wife. It’s almost enough to make you lose faith in the system. Fortunately, we are a vengeful and judgemental people and while the public court system has let him off fairly easy the court of public opinion will probably never forgive him. Brett has gone from being the Sam’s Club tire changing feel good story of 2009 to an MMA pariah in 2011.

    Oh shit, the fight he’s getting out for is against Tim Fucking Sylvia.  This couldn’t get any more inhumane.
