Ex-NFL Player Shot by Homeowner Gets Probation for Burglary
PORTLAND (AP) — A former NFL player who was shot after trespassing onto a homeowner's multimillion-dollar property in Portland has been sentenced to three years of probation.
KPTV-TV reports that former Detroit Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson II was given a deferred jail sentence Monday after pleading no contest to burglary and attempted burglary charges.
Authorities say Wilson was found naked and wounded in a backyard in June after the homeowner shot him in the abdomen.
Wilson was arrested again last month following a disturbance at another Portland home, where police say they found him naked and under the influence of drugs.
Wilson had backed out a plea deal in January. An advocate representing him at the time said the agreement was forced upon him by officials at Multnomah County and state agencies.
