Jason Richardson’s Jail Term

It was a very short one: “Suns guard Jason Richardson received a one-day jail sentence last month when his two cases for separate driving incidents were adjudicated, according to court documents…The Suns suspended him for a game [last season] after the second [DUI] case, costing him about $110,000 in salary.”

    or he could just kill himself before he gets behind the wheel and kills someone else

    The police report had him doing a 360 before coming to a crashing stop.

    LOL at Anton. Seriously though, it’s messed up how athletes are treated so differently in these cases. JR Smith killed his friend, after having multiple DUIs, and he gets a slap on the wrist, in the offseason no less. It’s like human life is valued less, if a sports figure takes it.

    It’s not because they’re sports figures, it’s because they’re millionaires. Anybody with an eight-digit bank account would get this treatment.

    Wow – a one day sentence. That is really going to deter people.

    if this woulda happend to any of us, we’d lose our license, and get like 30 days. possibly more.

    1 day is pretty standard for DUI. As much as jail sucks, anybody could do a day. Hope he learns from his mistake.

    Yeh, a day and 110,000$ ‘fine’. That seems a fair bit more now doesn’t it?
    But any of us would’ve got more jail time, thats for sure.

    Who knows how many points against he has on his license resulting in a possible lesser penalty. JR Smith’s was outlandish with over 20 or so, where nobody can usually go without being put away for some time – I would think.
