Travis Henry Sentenced to 3 Years In Prison
Congrats to Kelis and Nas on the birth of their son, now on the other hand you have Travis Henry who gets a break from his 11 children by 10 babies mamas because he was sentenced last Wednesday in MONTANA to three years in prison on a federal drug charge. He accepted a plea deal in April, admitting to a single cocaine conspiracy charge.
Henry’s mother, Karnella Johnson, wrote a letter of support for her son, calling him “a great father” to his children, saying he provided for all his children the best that he could,” Johnson wrote. She continued, “When he started with the Broncos, the women then became greedy and wanted more money." “This is where everything started to fall apart for my son.” Henry was depressed and worried about how he was going to take care of his children and family, she wrote.
Henry was a star in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills, also played for the Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos. He had faced a possible 10 years to life in prison and a $4 million fine. The Feds waived the fine because they said Henry could not afford it.
