Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry is a step closer to turning a page in what has been a tumultuous off-season.
Henry was in a Kenton County court this morning to plead guilty to charges from a traffic stop that landed him in front of a Kenton County court.
Henry pled guilty today to charges of possession of marijuana. Henry was arrested by a Covington Police officer on I-75 in December for what was a routine traffic stop. After some investigation, officers found some marijuana in Henry's shoe. The officer also cited Henry for speeding and driving without a valid driver's license and driving without insurance.
The other charges were dropped in lieu of Henry pleading guilty to the marijuana charges.
Henry spent 28 days in a drug rehabilitation program as part of his sentencing and had to pay a $250 fine.
During the hearing Henry read from a statement thanking the NFL, the Bengals and head coach Marvin Lewis for their understanding and he said he was sorry to the fans. Henry also said he knows how important it is to be drug free and that he needed to grow up.
Henry has already served the 28 days of rehab and still faces gun charges in Orlando, Florida.
