A former NFL player, the man accused of leaking information about the NFL’s draft picks, is under house arrest after his arrest on bribery charges
A former professional football player, who was under house arrests for months on a corruption charge, was released from jail today after a judge in Los Angeles approved his bail.
Dylan Jones, 24, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with one count of corruption of a public official, one count each of filing a false statement and filing a fraudulent document, said his attorney, Joseph T. Rambaldi.
Jones, a six-year veteran of the Los Angeles Chargers, was freed after his arraignment at the Los Alamitos Federal Courthouse in Los Alamito, New Mexico, on Thursday.
He was released on $10,000 bail.
He is scheduled to appear again in court Friday, the attorney said.
Jones’ arrest came days after ESPN’s Adam Schefter revealed that NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent was the source of the information about NFL draft picks leaked by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen in December.
Jones was suspended by the Chargers after his release, but the team later announced he would return to the team on an interim basis.
In March, Jones was arrested in the city of Los Angeles for violating his probation after pleading guilty to a charge of public corruption.
He also was charged with perjury and filing false documents.
Jones has been in the Los Feliz County Jail since May.
He has been under house-arrest since March 23 and has been released on his own recognizance, the Los Altos County Sheriff’s Department said.
In February, Jones and former Chargers wide receiver Kenny Britt were both charged with public corruption for sharing the names of draft picks and draft prospects for the 2016 NFL draft.
In addition to Britt, Britt was charged in February with two other charges: providing false information about an NFL employee and filing an incomplete tax return.
Jones is not related to former Chargers receiver Kenny Stills, who is also facing criminal charges related to his role in the leak.
