Ex NBA Player Sebastian Telfair Sentenced to 3.5 Years in Prison

Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison Monday on a gun possession charge, according to Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez.

Telfair was convicted of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in April. He was arrested in July 2017 after police found a loaded gun in his pickup truck during a traffic stop in Prospect Heights.

According to the Brooklyn DA’s office, Telfair was pulled over after making a U-turn off a median in a pickup truck with his headlights off. When officers approached the truck, “the smell of marijuana was present, as was a lit marijuana cigarette in the car’s console, according to testimony.
