Gilbert Arenas doing community service as mentor at center for juvenile offenders
Gilbert Arenas is fulfilling part of his debt to society by working with young offenders in D.C.'s juvenile justice system. We've learned that the Wizards superstar -- handed a no-jail penalty for his firearms guilty plea that includes 400 hours of community service -- will be doing at least some of that work at the New Beginnings Youth Development Center in Laurel. He'll be there in a "mentoring" role, we're told -- not basketball coaching, but assisting teachers in the classrooms and talking one-on-one with kids about their lives. Arenas is scheduled to start serving 30 days in a Montgomery County halfway house at some time in the near future if not already (Corrections officials are deliberately cagey about specifics for security reasons.)
