We all know that Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton were stupid to bring weapons to their place of work. And though the court could have thrown the book at him, Arenas was only sentenced to 30 days in a halfway house, two years probation and 400 hours of community service.
Some may think he got off easy but considering the plea deal Crittenton received, it wouldve been wrong to punish him more. After all, both were at fault here, but only Arenas suffered the public scorn and humiliation. Sure, he brought a lot of it on himself by not taking the situation seriously. Still, the media attention made it seem like Arenas was the only one who brought a gun with him to work. And that simply was not the case.
Gilbert Arenas is still waiting to hear the full extent of his fate, but that’s not the case with Javaris Crittenton. The Wizards guard reached a plea deal with prosecutors that was accepted by the judge, resulting in one year’s worth of unsupervised probation.
As for Arenas, he’s still waiting to get setenced… but seeing as how he was charged with a felony, it certainly won’t be as soft of a punishment.
Either way, Commisioner Stern threw the league book at booth, banning them for the remainder of the season!
