Jerramy Stevens Released From Jail After Serving Two Days In Jail


TORRANCE, Calif. – After spending 2 days of a 30-day DUI sentence, Former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens was released from jail in Los Angeles County. Jail records showed that Stevens was locked up Friday morning and freed on Sunday afternoon. For the incident he caused, he still has to accomplish a 2-year alcohol program and 4-year of probation.

Solo was also in the car which her husband Stevens was driving for which she was suspended from the national team for thirty days but it was said that she is not allowed to play due to some health problems.

Prosecutors told that on 23rd April, pleas were entered by Stevens to 2 misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a BAC level of 0.08 percent. Both incidents occurred within the time span of 10 years as the 1st DUI offense happened in the year 2007. When the accident happened, Steven’s BAC level was 0.15 percent.

On 19th of January, he was taken into custody in Manhattan Beach at about 1.30am while he was driving a U.S. women’s soccer team van at night with the lights off.

Prosecutors also told that when officers took Stevens into custody, he refused to give a blood or breath sample for testing, causing officers to get a search warrant in order to get a blood sample from him, reported My News LA.

According to TMZ report, he was given one day of jail credit for the time he served following his arrest on Friday.

The Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Nicole Bershon told during the hearing that if Stevens has another DUI accident that resulted in death, he can be charged with murder instead of vehicular manslaughter, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In a statement issued by his lawyer, Stevens said he accepted the consequences of his “failure to act responsibly. I look forward to putting it all behind me and moving forward with my life in a positive and productive manner”.

Solo was also taken into custody in January as she was reportedly almost taken into custody for disorderly conduct after she became “belligerent” while officers conducted the traffic stop. In the month of February, she said on ABC’s Good Morning America that she had made a “horrible choice” by being in the van.

On 11th of August 2014, Solo appeared in Kirkland Municipal Court which was her 2nd appearance after which she requested another, later court date.
