U.S. Atty’s Office Wants NBA Star Gilbert Arenas to Do Time

WASHINGTON — Suspended Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas may get to practice his basketball skills with a bunch of inmates if the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office has its way.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office filed a sentencing memorandum Tuesday recommending that Arenas get 3 months in jail and 300 hours of community service, saying he has “shown little genuine remorse” and that he “feigns ignorance of the law” in his case in which he brought four guns to the Verizon Center locker room  in the Chinatown district in Northwest Washington. Sentencing is set for Friday in D.C. Superior Court, the city’s criminal court.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher R. Kavanaugh wrote in the memo that Arenas tried to cover up his confrontation with the guns and teammate Javaris Crittenton and made up different stories about why he had brought guns to work.

In very pointed language, Kavanaugh  wrote:

“If any other individual — without the fame, power, and the wealth of this defendant — brought four firearms into Washington D.C. for the purpose of a similar confrontation, fabricated a story to conceal that confrontation, provided convenient explanations in an attempt to mitigate his conduct that were proved false, joked about the incident to large groups, and stated that he did nothing wrong and felt no remorse, the government would seek their incarceration, and the Court would almost certainly give it. The defendant, although famous, powerful, and wealthy, should be treated no differently.”
