CALGARY - The Crown says a former Canadian Football League all-star should spent two to three years in jail for assaulting his one-time girlfriend.

Joffrey Reynolds was found guilty earlier this year of assault causing bodily harm, common assault and unlawfully being in a dwelling.

His former girlfriend testified at his trial that he tried to choke and smother her when she came home and found him in her bed after a night of drinking in July 2012.

Reynolds's lawyer told a Calgary court that his client has lost his reputation and his career and should be given a non-custodial sentence.

He says Reynolds, a U.S. citizen, faces removal from Canada.

Reynolds played eight years for the Calgary Stampeders and was the team's all-time leading rusher with 9,213 yards.
