Ex-NBAer Telfair sentenced to 3.5 years in prison

13 August, 2019, 19:28 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

Telfair was arrested in NY in 2017 after being seen driving with no headlights at around 3 a.m.

After being pulled over, the pair was found with "three loaded firearms, a semi-automatic rifle, ammunition and a bullet-resistant vest, police said".

On Monday, Telfair was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison for gun possession.

The New York Post reported that Telfair had an emotional outburst in court after the sentence was announced.

He said that he didn't know the guns were in the auto because he was going through a divorce at the time and paid movers to put some of his belongings in his truck and transport them up from Florida to NY for him, before he arrived back. "I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family". However, they were legally licensed in Florida-where he lived-and not in NY, where they were discovered.

"Put a gun in his hand and fight for us n-a". I got an American Express, " Telfair said at Monday's hearing.

It was Telfair's second arrest in relation to gun possession. Out of high school, Telfair was heralded as one of the most promising young players in the game, and was even featured on the cover of SLAM Magazine alongside LeBron James.

Of the 2007 arrest, which led to a sentence of three years' probation, Telfair told Sports Illustrated in 2013 that he had the gun for "no particular reason or particular situation", adding: "Just having it, being dumb".

The NYPD insists they carried out an internal investigation into the matter. His career National Basketball Association scoring average was 7.4 points per game. He played for eight teams in the league-Portland, Boston, Minnesota, Toronto, the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix, Cleveland and Oklahoma City.
