Former Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Malik McDowell has been sentenced to 11 months in jail and three years of probation after pleading guilty last month to a series of crimes, according to ESPN.
As part of McDowell’s sentencing Wednesday in Oakland County (Michigan) Circuit Court, a judge ordered him to write four essays in the next 90 days.
McDowell never played one snap after being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. He was 23 years old and after a rough ATV accident in 2017, McDowell would eventually get cut by the team. He was a 2nd round pick by the Seahawks, but recently was arrested for charged with assault, resisting arrest and operating a vehicle while intoxicated after an incident in which he fought with two officers after a DUI stop. In April, he was found in possession of a stolen Ford F-150 Raptor, which led to a charge of receiving and concealing stolen property.
McDowell will have to write some essays and spend some time in jail. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
