CALGARY -- A former CFL all-star completed his spectacular fall from grace Friday when he was sentenced to 90 days in jail for assaulting his one-time girlfriend.
Joffrey Reynolds, 33, will serve his time on weekends and faces two years of probation once he has completed his sentence.
He was found guilty earlier this year of assault causing bodily harm, common assault and unlawfully being in a dwelling after trying to choke and smother his former girlfriend when she came home and found him in her bed in July 2012.
Crown prosecutor Hyatt Mograbee had asked that Reynolds be given two to three years in prison. Reynolds's defence lawyer told court that his client had already lost his reputation and career and shouldn't have to spend time behind bars.
