Former New York Giants RB/PR Dave Meggett has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted of criminal sexual misconduct and burglary in South Carolina. Sadly, Meggett has a long history of accusations of sexual assault and is in fact still facing rape charges in a separate case. He also doesn’t seem to have saved his money well, as he was represented by a public defender in this most recent case.â†µ
Anyone who followed the Eagles in the early '90s hated Dave Meggett. He was sort of what Brian Westbrook was early in his career. This guy who was deadly on punt returns, and the Giants would stick in on 3rd downs and he’d inevitably find a way to scurry past the first down marker…â†µ
We hated him, but we sure respected him as a talent. This is certainly a sad story for all involved.
