Jerome Simpson (file photo)

Judge Gregory Bartlett of Kenton County Circuit Court in Lexington, Kentucky, said on Thursday that he was very impressed with the testimony and letters sent to him on Jerome Simpson’s behalf. He said that the Bengals wide receiver appears to be “a good person” who had a “serious lapse in judgment.”

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was also sent a letter to Judge Bartlett in support of Simpson. He says the team is still open to offering him a new contract. Simpson currently is an unrestricted free agent.

Judge Bartlett reduced Simpson’s jail sentenced down from 30 days to 15 and also gave him three years’ probation on a drug-related charge.

Simpson pleaded guilty March 1 to the felony charge resulting from about 2 grams of marijuana shipped to his northern Kentucky home in September 2011. He was indicted on a felony charge of marijuana trafficking, but the plea seal changed the charge to a prohibited act relating to controlled substances which is also a felony.

Simpson was the Bengals second-round draft choice from Coastal Carolina in 2008, the 46th overall pick. He caught 53 passes for 758 yards and four touchdowns in 2011.
