Ex-football player receives 20-year sentence on drug charge

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) A former college football player who went to trial for violating North Carolina’s sports agent law has received a 20-year prison sentence on a drug conviction in Georgia following a probation violation.

Superior Court Judge Terry N. Massey imposed the sentence Wednesday on Christopher Jamel Hawkins, 37, on a charge originating from an April 2009 traffic stop. According to a sentencing filing Friday in Morgan County, Hawkins receives credit for time served in custody for roughly three weeks in 2009 and since June 2012.

That’s when Hawkins – who played at UNC and Marshall from 2001-05 – pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of possession with intent to distribute cocaine in a deal to receive 10 years of probation in a first-offender program. A grand jury indicted Hawkins in June 2009 for cocaine trafficking, marijuana possession and a seatbelt violation, according to court documents.
