I guess Gilbert Arenas was just a Washington Bullet at heart.
NBA Washington Wizards All-star guard Gilbert Arenas has pleased guilty to one count of felony gun possession in connection with his carrying firearms without a license and storing them in his locker. According to Arenas defense attorney, prosecutors have agreed not to seek a sentence longer than the low end of sentencing guidelines, which call for six months to two years. However, the judge is not bound by agreement or prosecutors recommendation.
Gone is Gilbert Arenas joking about the gun incident as he pleads guilty to felony gun possession
Just another case of a misguided, clueless and wanna be gangsta athlete who is now faced with a dose of reality and and a potential end to his career.
Arenas pleaded guilty to a single count of violating the city’s strict gun laws as part of a plea bargain in D.C. Superior Court. He will remain free at least until his sentencing March 26.
The charge stems from a Dec. 21 incident in which Arenas acknowledged he stored guns in his locker at the Verizon Center and took them out to play a joke on a teammate.
The NBA has suspended him indefinitely. A pre-sentence report is not yet complete, but defense attorney Kenneth Wainstein said Friday that prosecutors have agreed not to seek a sentence longer than the low end of sentencing guidelines, which call for six months to two years. That could include probation, jail time or some combination. Judge Robert E. Morin emphasized he is not bound by prosecutors’ recommendation.
