DJ Williams Sentenced To 30-Day Home Arrest
" DENVER (AP) – Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams will serve 30 days under home arrest for driving under the influence but not until after the season.

Williams was sentenced Wednesday but a judge said he didn’t have to start serving it until Feb. 7, 2013. Prosecutors had asked that Williams serve a month behind bars.

Besides the home arrest, during which time he’ll have to wear an ankle monitor, Williams also must serve two years of probation, have his sobriety monitored and attend alcohol education classes and therapy, all standard punishments for second-time offenders. He also must perform 56 hours of community service and pay $2,390 in court costs.

“We thought it was a fair and appropriate sentence given all the circumstances,” said Williams’ lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, who immediately filed an appeal.

Williams is serving an NFL-mandated three-game suspension over his August conviction for driving while ability impaired. This is on top of the six-game suspension he just completed for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Williams was banned from team headquarters for the first six weeks of the season but was allowed to return last week "
