    I was able to get a copy of the letter Bill Belichick wrote on Dennard's behalf seeking a favorable sentence:

    April 11, 2013

    Judge Stephanie Stacy
    Lincoln Nebraska District Courthouse
    Lincoln, NE

    Dear Judge Stacy:

    On behalf of the New England Patriots and the National Football League, may it please the court, I respectfully request that defendant Alfonzo Dennard receive a lenient sentence for his conviction for felony assault on a police officer and misdemeanor resisting arrest.

    I'm sure you agree, your honor, that it is what it is. Mr. Dennard is a young man who no longer resides in your state who made a mistake. He is now my problem, not yours, and I guarantee you I can make his life much worse on a daily basis than anything you can dish out at the Nebraska House of Corrections. Further, you can be sure that Marshall Goodell will hand down his own punishment, and if it is anything like Spygate, it will go way beyond his authority and cost Mr. Dennard dearly in both money and humiliation.

    For the love of God, your honor, show some compassion. Did you see the New England Patriots secondary last year? It was pathetic until Mr. Dennard and his fellow scofflaw, Mr. Talib, took over the corners and allowed us to stick Devon McCourty at safety where he belongs. A brief sentence will serve justice best by limiting the embarrassment the people of New England will have to suffer if Mr. Dennard cannot get in a full training camp and capably man his corner.

    Further, it will take pressure off of Tom Brady to ring up 35 points a game just to keep up with inferior quarterbacks. Without Mr. Welker to help him, it is an unfair burden on Mr. Brady if Mr. Dennard is unable to perform in the regular season. We both know that you are a red-blooded American woman, your honor. There's no mystery that you have the hots for Mr. Brady, now don't you, your honor?

    So, your honor, do the right thing and set my cornerback free.

    Sincerely,

    Bill Belichick
    HC of the NEP

    Do the real letters wind up in the public court transcripts?

    If coach wrote that letter, you can be certain it was written in Dennard's own blood. :eek:

    I think that this one belongs in a special folder to read and enjoy over and over. Well done!

    I read it and laughed at, what I thought was an obvious joke. Then I read posters debating it's authenticity.

    And no, people who ask for proof it is NOT authentic, I can not prove a negative.:D (Yes, frnordcicle, I know you are joking.)

    It's an obvious fake: BB would *never* use a colon to transition from the salutation to the letter body.

    "I'm sure you agree, your honor, that it is what it is."

    I thought that line was proof enough that this must have come from BB.

    If you're asking a real question (not sure due to sarcasm of the thread), then the answer would definitely be "no."

    Any letters written to the court on behalf of the defendant are only for the judge's eyes, and meant to be taken into consideration during the sentencing phase.

    In other words, there's only one person making the ultimate sentencing determination, so they would be the only one privvy to that kind of information.

    I suppose there's always the rare case of a leaky tipstaff/staff of the judge, or someone like a court reporter, intern, or lawyer who could potentially have access to the judge's papers or desk, but I would think those are very rare occurrances.
