LARAMIE – A former lawyer sentenced to Wyoming's former football player Carl Granderson to six months in prison Thursday morning at the Albany County District Court, denied the terms of his plea agreement.
Granderson has no pleading contest with a number of sexual batteries and a number of unlawful interactions after the court informed her intention to change her non-guilty plea on filed documents on his behalf earlier this week through his lawyer Meagan Overmann Goetz. Both Goetz and prosecutors have agreed on the terms of the plea, which includes one year of unsupervised probation and a mental examination to complete within 60 days.
judged by Tori Kricken who denied the deal and ordered Granderson, who signed a contract contract with the New Orleans Saints April, to immediately start serving six months at the Albany County Detention Center on the number of unlawful contact. Kricken also provided a one-year sentence of imprisonment in the battery section charged for one year of probationary probation upon completion of his six-month prison term.
After consultation with Goetz after the trial, Granderson was taken into custody and led outside the court. Goetz declined to comment.
Granderson, originally charged with the third level of sexual abuse and sexual battery in February, was reported to have been signed by the Saints to $ 85,000 after being undrafted in April. The Saints are scheduled to start training camp July 26 in Metairie, Louisiana.
