45 year-old Reggie Rogers, former Washington Huskies defensive lineman, will serve one more year in jail after being charged with this sixth drunk driving offense. Rogers has had a checkered past and has been in-and-out of jail since the late 80s. In 1988, he killed three teenage boys in Michigan when he was driving drunk and struck their car going 60 mph. He spent a year in jail after being convicted of negligent homicide.
Rogers is currently serving a two year sentence for another drunk driving conviction from 2009, and he will begin serving his latest sentence in January after his two years are over. He currently has been out on work release. His lawyers will ask the judge to allow Rogers to serve the remainder of his sentence on home confinement due to his recent spinal surgery.
