Bears' T. Johnson Pleads Guilty to Misdemeanor Gun Charge
Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson pleaded guilty today to a misdemeanor gun charge.
Johnson pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm without an owner's identification as part of a deal with prosecutors to avoid additional jail time. He is to serve 45 days in jail, a term that is to be served concurrently with the 120-day sentence that he's already serving for violating his probation in a previous gun case. Johnson was arrested in December after police officers found six unregistered firearms in his home.
Several NFL sources have said that Johnson is expected to be suspended by Commissioner Roger Goodell for a significant portion of next season after he's available to have a hearing before Goodell.
