Saints Rookie DE Carl Granderson Sentenced To 6 Months In Jail For Sexual Battery Case


According to Davis Potter, Saints rookie DE Carl Granderson has been sentenced to six months in jail immediately after pleading no contest on Thursday in a sexual battery case.

Granderson changed his plea to no contest on charges of sexual battery and unlawful contact this morning. He was given a one-year jail sentence that will be suspended with one-year supervised probation.

The probation period will begin after Granderson serves six months in jail.

Saints HC Sean Payton previously said they felt “real comfortable” with what they know about Granderson’s situation.

We felt real comfortable with everything we knew, and so far he’s done a good job here,” Payton said, via

Granderson, 22, wound up going undrafted out of Wyoming back in April. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Saints.

During his college career at Wyoming, Granderson recorded 173 tackles, 16.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, a recovery, two defensive touchdowns, three pass defenses and three interceptions over the course of four seasons and 42 games.
