Paul A. Long, of the Cincinnati Post, reports Kenton County prosecutors are working out a deal with Cincinnati Bengals WR Chris Henry that will keep him out of jail in Kentucky. Henry, who was arrested on charges of speeding and possession of marijuana in Covington on Dec. 15, would have to undergo treatment or therapy under any plea bargain. Henry is due in court Wednesday, March 22, but the case is expected to be continued. Under NFL rules, the arrest put Henry into a treatment plan of up to 90 days.

Bengals' Henry Pleads Guilty, Apologizes To Fans

Receiver Sentenced To Time Served, $250 Fine

KENTON COUNTY, Ky. -- A Cincinnati Bengals receiver has pleaded guilty to drug charges in Kenton County.

Chris Henry was stopped for speeding in December by Covington police, who said they found two small bags of marijuana in one of his shoes.

Wednesday, Henry, 22, apologized to fans and said it's time for him to grow up.

Henry was sentenced to 28 days in a drug treatment program, which he has completed, and $250 in fines and court costs. The speeding charge was dropped.

Henry said he had learned from his time in the drug treatment program.

The receiver still faces charges of possession of a concealed firearm, improper exhibition of a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm, stemming from a January arrest in Orlando, Fla.
