MANLEY IN TROUBLE – AGAIN
Trouble-plagued defensive lineman Dexter Manley is in trouble with the law again after failing to appear for a pre-sentencing hearing following his conviction this past Wednesday for evidence tampering.
Manley was found guilty of attempting to swallow less than a gram of cocaine during a drug bust at a Houston motel, a conviction that carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison plus a $10,000 fine.
The forty-three year old defensive end retired in 1991 after failing his second drug test while a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Manley had previously failed a drug test in 1989 while playing for the Washington Redskins. He was suspended from the NFL and the next year joined the Arizona Cardinals.
Trouble is nothing new to Manley, having been arrested four times from November 1994 to July 1995 for possessing small quantities of crack cocaine. He later was convicted and served 15 months of a four-year sentence before parole in 1996.
