Sebastian Telfair was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison”

On Monday, he complained in court that he was being penalized too harshly for a "victimless crime".

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. "I am 34. I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family". I'm waiting for my daughter right now to get her period. Real mental illness because I wasn't around... She hasn't even gotten her period yet'. Police found firearms including a semi-automatic rifle, ammunition, a ballistic vest and marijuana inside a vehicle Telfair was driving during a traffic stop in Brooklyn.

"Put a gun in his hand and fight for us n-a". I got an American Express, ' he added.

Along the way, he was involved in a pair of weapons-related incidents, including a 2007 arrest on a gun possession charge after he was pulled over for speeding in Yonkers, N.Y. The Trail Blazers fined Telfair in 2006 after a loaded gun was found on a team plane, reportedly in a pillowcase belonging to him. The arresting officer stated in his testimony that "the smell of marijuana was present, as was a lit marijuana cigarette in the car's console". The guard spent one season in Boston, averaging 6.1 points and 2.8 assists in 78 games.

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.

According to TMZ, Telfair could have faced up to 15 years in prison in the most recent case, but was given the minimum sentence of three years.
