Records show he also was charged with attempting to conceal the substance from investigators.||||||| Jolly received probation in April after pleading guilty to a 2008 charge of possessing codeine. The deal allowed a similar charge from March to be dropped. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in July 2010 and did not play for the Packers during their Super Bowl-winning season.

A judge sentenced Jolly to probation Thursday after he pleaded guilty to a 2008 drug possession charge in Houston in a plea deal with prosecutors.||||||| Jolly was accused of possessing at least 200 grams of codeine, a controlled substance, after being arrested outside a Houston club three years ago. He was charged again earlier this year with possession of codeine, but that count was dropped. As part of his sentence, Jolly will receive drug treatment at a facility in Houston run by former NBA player and coach John Lucas. He had faced up to 20 years in prison.
