Former Calgary Stampeders all-star Joffrey Reynolds’ fall from grace landed with a thud Friday as he was sentenced to jail and probation for abusing his ex-girlfriend.

Provincial court Judge Brian Stevenson ordered the Stamps all-time leading rusher to serve 90 days in jail on weekends on charges of assault, assault causing bodily harm and being unlawfully in his victim’s home.

Stevenson also said Reynolds must serve two years probation under strict conditions -- including house arrest for the first six months and a ban on boozing.

Although a far cry from the penitentiary term she was seeking, Crown prosecutor Hyatt Mograbee said the punishment will send a message out that no one is above the law.

“The message to the community is that there is a consequence,” Mograbee said, following Stevenson’s ruling.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, or what your background is, there is a consequence,” she said.
