Former Michigan football player Boubacar Cissoko sentenced on new charge
A former University of Michigan football player already serving prison time for prior convictions was sentenced last week on a count of assaulting a prison employee.
Boubacar Cissoko pled guilty to one charge and received a sentence of 22 to 38 months that will run concurrent with his previous sentence of 19 months to 15 years in prison.
Two additional counts were dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea, which came in front of Washtenaw County Circuit Judge Archie Brown.
Brown credited Cissoko with 138 days already served, and said he could be eligible for a special alternative boot camp at a to-be-determined point in his sentence.
Cissoko received his original sentence on Aug. 4 after being convicted of assault with intent to rob while unarmed and three counts of larceny from a person.
A 5-foot-9, 175-pound cornerback, Cissoko was kicked off the Wolverines' football team in October 2009 for an unspecified violation of team rules.
