Dallas Mavericks point guard Raymond Felton pleaded guilty on Wednesday in a New York gun case, taking a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but spares him jail.
“Are those charges true?” Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Larry Stephen asked.
“Yes, sir,” Felton said, later adding in a soft voice: “I apologize. I realize what I did was wrong.”
He was immediately sentenced to 500 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine. Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Rebold said Felton will be allowed to do the service outside New York.
If he complies, the case will be closed without jail time or probation.
