NFL-- After a fatal car accident, an NFL player  sentenced to 3 months house arrest

Deshazor Everett, a former Washington Commanders safety, has been sentenced to three months house arrest.

In December 2021, he is arrested in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Olivia Peters, in a deadly vehicle accident.

On Thursday, Everett, 30, was given a sentence in Loudoun County General District Court.

The first nine months of his 12-month house imprisonment were suspended.

Everett was travelling at a speed of 90 mph in a zone designated for 45 mph at the time of the collision. He was initially charged with felony involuntary manslaughter.

He lost control of the car and slammed it into some trees off a semi-rural Virginia road.

His longtime girlfriend, Peters, died at a nearby hospital. Everett was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and released four days later. 

Everett spent seven seasons with the Washington organisation as a reserve safety and former special teams captain.

Before the accident, he went to dinner with some of his teammates.
