It wasn’t all fun and games yesterday for Gilbert Arenas, who was charged with felony gun charges. Arenas plead guilty to carrying a pistol without a license in the District of Columbia, a felony conviction that can mean up to 5 years in prison. Arenas will be sentenced on March 26th and it’s expected he will receive little to no time in jail. Arenas has a prior gun violation, which means Judge Robert E. Morin could sentence Arenas to anything from probation to a maximum of five years in jail. Hopefully for Arenas’ sake, Judge Morin gets laid the night before his sentencing.
The fact that Arenas will be sentenced on March 26th doesn’t bode well for his 2009-2010 season. If he receives any time behind bars he would serve after his March 26th sentencing, which means he’d likely miss the remainder of the 2009-2010 season if he does serve time. Now that Arenas has been dropped by the Wizards he faces the possibility of not being picked up this season. However it’s likely Arenas will get picked up by some team who needs 20 points and 10 assists a night.
We’ll all just have to wait and see what happens on March 26th.
