Henry pleads guilty to trafficking cocaine
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- Former NFL running back Travis Henry has pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine in a federal drug case that could land him in prison for 10 years or more.
Appearing in federal court in Billings, Mont., on Thursday, Henry admitted to a single count of conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute.
He was arrested in Denver last October after authorities broke apart a drug ring that trafficked cocaine between Colorado and Montana.
U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull accepted the guilty plea and set a July 15 sentencing date. Two other cocaine trafficking charges were dropped under a deal worked out with prosecutors.
Henry will remain free on $400,000 bond.
