Bengals WR Jerome Simpson pleads to drug charge, faces time in jail
By The Associated Press

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) ' Cincinnati Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson has pleaded guilty to a drug charge as part of an agreement with prosecutors that could send him to jail.

Simpson was indicted for trafficking in marijuana after a shipment from California was tracked to his home in northern Kentucky. He pleaded guilty in Kenton County Circuit Court on Thursday to a felony count of a prohibited act relating to a controlled substance.

The agreement with prosecutors includes a recommended 60-day jail sentence that would include a work release provision. Judge Gregory Bartlett set an April 5 sentencing hearing on whether to accept it.

Simpson also faces a suspension from the NFL for violating its conduct policy. He's a free agent after completing his four-year deal with the Bengals.
