NFL Player Henry Ruggs Receives 3-to-10 Year Prison Sentence for DUI Crash


A former NFL star Henry Ruggs was on Wednesday, August 9, sentenced to 3-to-10 years in prison over the 2021 car crash that resulted in the death of 23-year-old Tina Tintor and her dog.

24-year-old Ruggs was handed the sentence at a Las Vegas courtroom after issuing an apology to Tintor’s family right at the hearing.

The ex-Raiders wide receiver said;

“To the parents and family of Ms. Tintor, I sincerely apologize for the pain and suffering my actions on the morning of Nov. 2, 2021, have caused you, your family and those who knew Ms. Tina and Max.

“I let my family, my teammates and those who believed in me down with my actions and hurt so many.”

He added that there was “no excuse” for his actions. A statement from Tintor’s family was also read inside the courtroom before the judge made her ruling. Ruggs was then immediately remanded into custody.

TMZ reported that Ruggs initially facing more than 50 years behind bars in the case after authorities accused him of drunkenly slamming his Corvette into the back of Tintor’s Rav-4 in Vegas, killing her and her golden retriever.

The former football player reached a deal with prosecutors back in May, agreeing to plead guilty to one felony count of DUI resulting in death and one misdemeanor count of vehicular manslaughter in exchange for a prison sentence that would not exceed 3-to-10 years. He will now be eligible for parole following his third year in prison.
