Wizards' Gilbert Arenas to be sentenced for gun crime
Star Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas is scheduled to appear in D.C. Superior Court Friday to be sentenced for the gun crime he admitted to in January.
Arenas, 28, pleaded guilty on Jan. 15 to a felony count of carrying a pistol without a license. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed not to ask for more than six months in jail.
Prosecutors from the District's U.S. Attorney's Office asked that Arenas be sentenced to at least three months in jail in a memo to the court filed earlier in the week.
In a separate memo, Arenas's attorney argued that his client should be placed on probation for six months to two years and perform community service.
Both memos are available in PDF format on the Crime Scene blog.
