Judge delays sentencing of Broncos' D.J. Williams in drunk driving case

A Denver County judge today delayed the sentencing of Broncos linebacker Genos "D.J." Williams until Oct. 24 following his recent DWAI conviction.
Because this is Williams' second drunken driving-related offense, he could face between 10 days and a year in jail for the misdemeanor and will have to spend two years on probation.
A spokesperson for the Denver District Attorney's Office said Williams will be eligible for in-home detention or work release.
He was stopped in November 2010 around 3 a.m. for driving without headlights and refused to take a blood alcohol test.
In light of the August DWAI conviction, the NFL announced Friday that Williams will remain suspended for three more games, returning to play Nov. 12.
Williams had been slated to return to play for the Bronco's Oct. 28 game against the New Orleans Saints following a botched drug test that led to a six-game suspension.
The league said he provided a "nonhuman" urine sample.
