Ex-Cowboy Convicted Of Intoxication Manslaughter

Updated: Wednesday, January 22 2014, 05:49 PM CST

A Dallas jury has convicted former Cowboys player Josh Brent of intoxication manslaughter in a wreck that killed a teammate.

The jury on Wednesday found Brent guilty in a December 2012 wreck in suburban Dallas that killed Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown, who was Brent's close friend and also his college teammate.

Brent faces up to 20 years in prison, though he's also eligible for probation.

Brent and Brown were heading home from a nightclub, where they had partied with other Cowboys players, when Brent lost control of his Mercedes.

He was found to have a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.

Brent's attorneys argued authorities' blood tests were flawed and that their client was a bad driver, but not drunk at the time of the crash.
