BILLINGS, Mont. -- The U.S. Attorney's office says former NFL player Travis Henry will remain in jail pending his July 15 sentencing on drug trafficking charges.

Henry, 30, had been free on $400,000 bail until he was arrested in Florida last month after testing positive for alcohol use, violating the terms of his release. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull in Billings ordered the defendant to be detained pending sentencing.

Henry pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to possess at least 11 pounds of cocaine with intent to distribute. He was cut by the Denver Broncos in June 2008 after playing one season of a four-year, $22.5 million contract.
