Dave MeggettThe versatile running back who played for the Patriots from 1995-97 is currently serving a 30-year sentence after he was convicted last November in South Carolina on charges of criminal sexual conduct and burglary. Meggett, who was convicted of misdemeanor sexual battery in 2007, was also arrested in 1998 in Toronto and charged with assaulting an escort after a sexual encounter. That case ended in a hung jury in April 2000.
