Henry County Pusher Jumps Bail

A confessed drug dealer could be facing more time behind bars after jumping bail to avoid prosecution.

Thirty-three-year-old Willie Sewell, Jr. of Abbeville failed to appear in court on a drug trafficking charge in March of 2003.

Authorities finally caught up with him a couple of months ago in New Jersey.

Sewell pled guilty to the drug charge last month and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Sewell was a star running back for the Alabama Crimson Tide football team in 1990.

He’s still waiting to stand trial on the bail jumping charge.
