Richard Sherman signs plea deal and avoids jail time following 2021 arrest


Richard Sherman has reached an agreement with the courts to resolve his arrest in 2021.

Sherman pleaded guilty Monday to 1st-degree negligent driving and 2nd-degree criminal trespass for his arrest last year in King County, Washington.

Sherman avoids additional jail time as part of his sentence. The judge handling the case ordered Sherman to serve 90 days in jail. But Sherman received an 88-day suspended sentence plus credit for the two days in jail he served last year after his arrest, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Sherman’s wife, Ashley, called 911 last year after observing Richard acting erratically and belligerently after a night of drinking. She said the five-time Pro Bowler was talking about killing himself.

Richard drove through a construction zone and then drove to his in-laws’ home, where he was filmed trying to break into the house. Sherman was arrested on suspicion of burglary and there was a domestic violence aspect to the allegation due to the house being owned by the family.

Sherman is nearing the end of his NFL career. He played five games in 2020 for the 49ers and five games last season for the Buccaneers.
