Former NBA Point Guard Sebastian Telfair Sentenced 3.5 Years for Gun Possession

Former NBA Point Guard Sebastian Telfair Sentenced 3.5 Years for Gun Possession”

Telfair's legal troubles began when the Brooklyn native was arrested in July 2017 after police found the loaded gun in his pickup following a traffic stop in Prospect Heights.

According to Bleacher Report, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced today (August 12) that Telfair caught the three-and-a-half year bid for gun possession.

At his hearing Monday in Brooklyn Supreme Court, a reportedly agitated Telfair said: "Please don't take me from the society right now".

"I kind of ruined my career with that", Telfair said then. "I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family". She hasn't even gotten her period yet'.

On Monday, he complained in court that he was being penalized too harshly for a "victimless crime". "I got an American Express". Telfair and his nephew were parked illegally on a median and reportedly drove away with headlights off when officers approached the vehicle.

The officers said they smelled burning marijuana inside the auto, prompting them to order the passengers out and arrest them before searching the vehicle. In total, they found three loaded pistols, a gas-operated submachine gun, extended magazines, ammunition and the ballistic vest.

Telfair was one of the most highly touted high school recruits in the nation, but he forewent his college eligibility to declare for the 2004 NBA Draft.

Telfair played 10 National Basketball Association seasons with nine different teams from 2004 to 2013, including the Boston Celtics, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Toronto Raptors.
