Josh Brent convicted of intoxication manslaughter

In our last post, we highlighted the progress of the prosecution of Josh Brent, the former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle who was involved in the crash that killed his friend and former teammate, Jerry Brown in December 2012. Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter for his part in the crash, as prosecutors argued that his blood alcohol level (alleged to be .18) was the principal cause of the accident.

Dallas cop arrested, faces family violence charge

It is somewhat ironic when police officers are arrested and charged with crimes. After all, law enforcement officers are charged with enforcing the laws that we all live by. With that, there is an inherent expectation that they will live by these laws as well (and not break them). Nevertheless, there are times when police officers may knowingly abuse their authority or unwittingly run afoul of the law while trying to enforce it.
