We've spent the past few days re-living the multiple arrests of former Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, so we should bring you Thursday's dramatic conclusion.

In case you haven't heard, a Houston judge sentenced him to six years in jail for violating probation after a third drug-related arrest in three years. Jolly acknowledged in ESPN's "Outside the Lines" report that he is addicted to codeine.

According to Houston television station KTRK, Jolly could be eligible for parole in 14 months. He remains under the conditions of an indefinite NFL suspension that began after the 2009 season.
