HOUSTON (WKOW) -- Former Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly was released from prison after serving just six months of a six-year sentence for codeine addiction.
Jolly applied for and was granted "shock probation," which allows certain convicts to go on probation after experiencing the shock of being in jail.
Jolly must serve 10 years of probation in addition to 200 hours of community service.
Jolly has argued that he isn't a criminal but rather an addict.
The NFL suspended Jolly indefinitely in 2010. He played for the Packers from 2006-2009.
