Gilbert Arenas Escapes Jail Time But Sentenced To 30 Days In Halfway House Along Wth 400 Hours Community Service


NBC Sports: If this had been an NBA game, Gilbert Arenas would have been jumping around at half-court, mobbed by teammates.

He won.

His sentence on gun charges in the District of Columbia is 30 days in a halfway house and two years probation. No jail time. It's not like he gets off scott free, he also has to donate $5000 to a victims of violence fund, do 400 hours of community service and registration as gun offender.

However, Superior Court Judge Robert E. Morin is not sending Arenas to jail.

Prosecutors had sought jail time, while Arena's attorneys had argued for just probation. The judge split the difference with 30 days in the halfway house.

This is a lighter sentence than some observers expected. Arenas had a prior gun charge in 2003 in California, plus may have conspired with Javaris Crittenton to cover up the incident. That led some to think Morin would come down harder.

The punishments stem from the charges that Arenas brought guns into the Wizards locker room at the Verizon Center on last Dec. 21 to confront teammate Crittenton over a gambling debt. Arenas pled guilty in January to carrying a firearm without a permit, which is a felony.

NBA Commissioner David Stern has already suspended Arenas for the remainder of this season.
