Ex-NFL running back Lawrence Phillips has been sentenced to more than 31 years in prison for attacking his girlfriend and driving his car into three teens.

Phillips, 34, was sentenced Friday in San Diego for assault and
other crimes.

Phillips told the judge he didn't get a fair trail and he'll
appeal.

Phillips twice choked his girlfriend in 2005 in San Diego. Later
that year, he aimed his car and struck three teens after a pickup
football game in Los Angeles.

A Los Angeles judge gave him 10 years for that attack but he was
re-sentenced to seven years on Friday.

Phillips was once one of the nation's top college football
players at Nebraska. The St. Louis Rams released him for
insubordination in 1997. He also play for the Miami Dolphins and
San Francisco 49ers.
