yes. he is merely charged.

doesn't mean he will get convicted.

most likely he will cop a plea without jail time and a BUNCH of community service (means nothing, since the NBA makes them do it anyways).

No sympathy here. He dug his own grave.

So they can go for the void, after he has been only charged?

I think the Wizards will void his contract anyway because they don't want to be associated with him. He will be a free agent after 500 hours of community service and proceed to sign with the Lakers for under $1 million.

i'd assume he has to be convicted of a felony, which is likely, although I don't know what degree felony this is. If its a low end, it could reasonably get bumped down to a misdemeanor.

Geez, when did simply the owning of a gun become the worst crime imaginable? Isn't USING a gun the crime?

Yet, if he lived in the country and had guns for hunting, it would be perfectly fine. Or if he simply had a license, then its all good.

Calm down, everyone. No one got hurt. Everything's ok. Take it easy on the guy......


"Throw the book at him....":rolleyes:
