Last time we heard from Denny Green, he was chomping at the bit to reunite with Daunte Culpepper and become the Head Coach and GM of the UFL’s Sacramaneto Mountain Lions. Unfortunately, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse. His son, former NFL scout and ESPN contributer Jeremy Green, was arrested on July 8th for possession of child pornography.
Jeremy Green, a former NFL scout and the son of former NFL coach Dennis Green, hasn’t been able to make bail on charges that include possession of child pornography.
Green, 38, has been in jail since his July 8 arrest at a Connecticut hotel. The former ESPN contributing writer pleaded not guilty yesterday to the porn charge, and to charges of possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
His public defender, Claud Chong, told the Hartford Courant his client’s $750,000 bail amount was “outrageous” for a non-violent crime, and added that, “There’s nothing special about this particular defendant that would warrant such a high bond.” –USAToday
Forgive me, Claud, if I don’t feel too much sympathy for a guy who wants to bang kids. Maybe he deserves to spend time in jail for breaking the law. Although, that would make way too much sense for the bureaucrats running the courts, I guess.
