Myfoxdetroit.com reports that Former Detroit Lion Reggie Rogers who was previously found responsible for the deaths of three teenagers in a fatal DUI car accident has now been convicted a sixth time of driving while under the influence. In this incident when Rogers was apprehended he was found to be clearly intoxicated and he was driving with a suspended drivers license. Rogers received a one year prison sentence for this latest conviction, but his lawyers are asking the court for permission to allow him to serve his sentence under house arrest as prison mattresses hurt his back. Rogers attorney acknowledges that while people who have been harmed by his client's actions won't care, forcing Rogers to sleep on a prison mattress would force him to have an expensive surgery on his back which would be tantamount to the infliction of cruel and unusual punishment. The father and uncle of the victims killed by Rogers in a fatal DUI car accident has offered to buy Rogers a mattress to keep him behind bars. Charlie Langton, a legal analyst was outraged at Rogers's counsel's request and states that there is no way the judge in this case is going to send Rogers home. This request for house arrest will be heard by the judge in November.
