The three-time NBA All-Star sentenced to 30 days, Gilbert Arenas, in a halfway house for bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room. Columbia Superior Court Judge Robert E. Morin described a litany of conditions associated with the sentence — two years of probation, a $5,000 fine, 400 hours of community service that can’t be done at basketball clinics.
Arenas lawyer Ken Wainstein released a statement signaling his client considered the outcome a victory, “The result was a sentence that serves justice very well,” the statement said. “Mr. Arenas is grateful to the court, and looks forward to serving the community and once again being a force for good in the District of Columbia.”
Prosecutors wanted him locked up for three months for the felony gun possession charge.
