Boulder Judge Denies Offensive Tackle Alex Lewis' Appeal of His 45 Day Sentence

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

Last week, incoming Nebraska offensive tackle Alex Lewis appealed his 45 day sentence resulting from a 2013 incident where Lewis and former Colorado teammate Jordan Webb assaulted an Air Force Academy cadet in Boulder. In his motion, Lewis asked that his sentence be modified to permit him to attend summer classes and participate in "mandatory football drills" that start in June.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Lewis' motion was denied, as the judge already allowed Lewis to defer his sentence until after the spring semester was completed.  Said Boulder District Judge Patrick Butler:

"He should not have registered for summer school knowing of this sentence. His football obligations and civil liability are not priorities for this court."


Assuming that Lewis will be reporting to jail next week, following the conclusion of the spring semester at the University of Nebraska, Lewis will likely remain incarcerated until the end of June. While Lewis will miss some workouts over the next few weeks, I suspect he'll still be a candidate to start at left tackle this fall.

Lewis announced that he was transferring from Colorado to Nebraska last May, and hours later, was arrested in Boulder after the assault.
