Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was back in a Nebraska court this morning.

Dennard admitted to violating his probation to the judge overseeing his probation revocation hearing but he won't serve any additional jail time as a result according to reporters from the Lincoln Journal Star who are on the scene. Dennard who was at Lancaster County District Court has been allowed to continue the terms of his two-year probation until his Dec. 5 sentencing.

Here's what it all means: Dennard will keep the original terms of his probation until Dec. 5 when the judge can determine his fate. Dennard will face the same terms for assaulting a police officer which carry a maximum of five years in jail and a $10000 fine. In theory a judge could choose to immediately throw him in jail Dec. 5 so he isn't out of trouble by any stretch of the imagination.

Dennard was sentenced to two years of probation after being found guilty in February of assaulting a police officer outside of a bar in Lincoln. He was also given a 30-day jail sentence to be served in March 2014 and 100 hours of community service.

Dennard was in court today because he was arrested in July for suspicion of driving under the influence. He told the judge today that he had two beers around 9 p.m. before driving his girlfriend's car four and a half hours later when he was pulled over and arrested in Lincoln Neb. The county subsequently pushed for the probation revocation hearing.
