When the Knicks’ Raymond Felton was cited a few months ago for weapons possession, it seemed on the surface like an absolute certainty that he would see the inside of a cell. After all, the transgression took place in New York; a place with the strictest gun laws on the planet.
However, according to the Denver Post, Felton will avoid jail time by pleading guilty. This is a bit of a surprise given the luck former athletes have had with guns in New York.
With Felton free or not, expect Phil Jackson to do something about the PG position this summer.
New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton is expected to plead guilty in a felony gun possession case in exchange for a no-jail sentence, prosecutors said Monday.
Felton was in a Manhattan court as prosecutors outlined the agreement, which would resolve a gun case that arose amid the breakup of his marriage. He’s expected to enter the plea June 30 and receive a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service.
