FOXBOROUGH -- Appearing in a Nebraska courtroom for the second time in two days, Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard pleaded no contest Friday to refusing a chemical test, with prosecutors dropping charges of driving under the influence, according to the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star.

The newspaper reported that Dennard had his driver's license revoked for 60 days, was fined $500, and was given probation to run concurrent with an earlier conviction for felony assault, which was modified Thursday.

The results of Dennard's two-day legal field trip won't keep the cornerback off the football field, since his jail sentence for the assault conviction doesn't start until March 1. A judge on Thursday extended that jail sentence to 60 days.

Friday's hearing had to do with a July 11 incident in Lincoln, where Dennard was arrested for driving under the influence.
