Dave Meggett Convicted on Rape Charge, Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison

Dave Meggett, whose six years with the Giants included a victory in Super Bowl XXV, and who also played for the Patriots and Jets, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison following a conviction on charges of criminal sexual conduct and first-degree burglary. The victim, a 21-year-old college student from North Charleston, South Carolina, said that she'd owed money to Meggett, and he assaulted her at her home to exact payback. (His lawyer testified during the trial that the two agreed to have sex to pay off the debt.) Meggett, whose lawyer said he will appeal, is eligible for parole in 2035. [AP via NYDN, NYP]
