Guilty plea for NBA's Delonte West

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors on weapons and traffic charges.

A spokesman for Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey says West will plead guilty to carrying concealed weapons and transporting loaded weapons.

His deal says he'll do court-supervised electronic monitoring, complete community service and undergo psychological counseling.

While waiting to stand trial Thursday, West said he feels “blessed.” Authorities say the basketball player was carrying two loaded handguns, a loaded shotgun and an 8 1/2-inch Bowie knife while speeding on a three-wheel motorcycle on the Capital Beltway in Prince George's County, Md. last September.

Police say West, who lives in Brandywine, Md., was pulled over after cutting off an officer.

With those weapons, it is truly a blessing to have money.

Why is it necessary for the prosecuter to make a deal when he was caught red handed? This guy had an arsenal on a speeding motorcycle and not one day in jail?

So he should be suspended for half or all of next year like someone else who got caught with guns right?
