Im no lawyer but that I don't believe that is the case. Again google Rolando Mcclain case. Those were misdemeanors and not felonies.
Rolando McClain Sentenced To 180 Days In Jail, According To Report
Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain could be in deep trouble in terms of playing in the 2012 regular season. Due to his incident in Alabama, McClain was sentenced to 180 days in jail this afternoon in Decatur.
If the 180 day sentence is true and he had to start serving it immediately, McClain would miss the majority of the 2012 regular season. This would force the Raiders to scramble to fill in their somewhat tenuous linebacking depth.
For those who don’t know the extent of McClain’s crimes, McClain has been charged with discharging a firearm inside the city limits, third degree assault, menacing and reckless endangerment. The assault and endangerment charges constitute Class A misdemeanors, with menacing being a Class B misdemeanor. McClain found himself in further trouble when his co-defendant agreed to testify against the linebacker. That probably sealed the sentence for McClain.
