 DENVER (AP) -Colorado's Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from former Denver Broncos linebacker John Mobley, who was sentenced to seven days in jail for a drunken driving conviction.
Defense attorneys had implied during Mobley's trial in April 2004 that his conviction was the result of racial profiling.
Prosecutors had said Mobley would not have to serve his sentence until his appeal was complete. It was unclear when he might be jailed.
Mobley's attorney, Harvey Steinberg, did not immediately return a call for comment.
Mobley, who was released by the Broncos in late July 2004 because of a lingering neck injury, was arrested Dec. 28, 2002, in Parker just south of Denver after failing a roadside sobriety test. Police said he had been driving 69 mph in a 40 mph zone.
His attorneys had argued during the trial that Mobley failed the sobriety test because of a concussion and other football injuries. Mobley testified he had been pulled over at least 12 times during the 12 months before his arrest.
He was sentenced to 365 days in jail, but the judge suspended all but seven days. Mobley also was sentenced to two years of probation and 100 hours of public service and ordered to pay a $600 fine.
Mobley has not returned to the NFL.
