Former Arizona Wildcats running back Orlando Bradford was sentenced to five years Monday for multiple charges including aggravated assault and domestic violence.

His charges were for two counts of aggravated assault. He received sentences of 2.5 years for each count. The sentences will be served consecutively.

Arizona Football Head Coach Rich Rodriguez kicked Bradford off the team after he was arrested in September 2016.

Bradford's girlfriend told police he attacked her and held her against her will.

Another woman came forward the next day and said Bradford assaulted her multiple times in the past.

Bradford will be sentenced in November and faces between two to eight years in prison.
