Telfair's punishment stems from police finding a loaded weapon in his auto during a traffic stop in Brooklyn in June 2017.
Former NBA point guard Sebastian Telfair was reportedly sentenced to three and a half years in prison on Monday, stemming from a 2017 illegal firearm possession.
Sebastian Telfair #31 of the Oklahoma City Thunder looks on during a game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on November 3, 2014 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.
Telfair, 34, was arrested in NY in 2017 after being pulled over in his vehicle, at which point, police said, they found a cache of firearms and ammunition.
The New York Post reported that Telfair had an emotional outburst in court after the sentence was announced. "I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family".
"This defendant exercised his right to a jury trial and was found guilty of possessing an illegal firearm", Gonzalez said. His career National Basketball Association scoring average was 7.4 points per game.
In 2004, Telfair was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and over the next two years his experiences inspired a book and a documentary. After searching Telfair's truck, authorities retrieved "a loaded.45 caliber gun in the console".
"I am 34", Telfair said in court. "But I don't beat myself up about it too much". "You've achieved greatness in your life, and this case doesn't take that away".
