Security Deshzor Everett, a former Washington commander, has been sentenced to three months in house arrest over the death of his girlfriend.
Olivia Peters, during a fatal car accident in December 2021.
Everett, 30, was sentenced on Thursday in Loudoun County General District Court.
He was originally given 12 months of house arrest before being suspended for nine months.
Everett was initially charged with a felony, after an investigation determined that he was driving at a speed of 90 mph in a 45 mph zone at the time of the accident.
He lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a group of trees off a semi-rural Virginia road, according to ESPN.
Peters, his longtime girlfriend, died at a local hospital.
Everett was treated for serious injuries and was released from the hospital four days after the accident.
Everett pleaded guilty in July to a low charge of reckless driving.
Everett, a former special teams captain and backup security, played seven seasons with the Washington Organization.
Before the accident he had gone out to dinner with a group of teammates.
