Javaris Crittenton Sentenced to Year of Probation

Wizards reserve guard Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court on Monday to a misdemeanor gun possession charge stemming from his locker room confrontation with Gilbert Arenas at the Verizon Center last month.

As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors agreed to drop a second misdemeanor charge and recommend a sentence of probation. Senior Judge Bruce Beaudin on Monday agreed with the prosecutor’s suggestion and sentenced Crittenton to one year of unsupervised probation and $1,250 in fines. Crittenton also agreed to begin a mentoring program to District children and work with the NBA on relief for Haiti earthquake victims.
