Oliver Miller Got 1 Year in Jail for Pistol-Whipping Incident

Former NBA-er Oliver Miller (who hooped for six franchises in the L) learned of his fate this past Friday, after pleading guilty last november to allegations that he pistol-whipped his girlfriend’s brother. The Baltimore Sun reports: “Miller, 41, who was living with his girlfriend in Edgewater, pleaded guilty last fall to first-degree assault and carrying a handgun. ‘I apologize for the wrong I’ve done,’ Miller told Anne Arundel Circuit Judge Paul A. Hackner. He said he is “just a man protecting the people I love.’ The allegations stemmed from a family argument at a cookout April 17 at a friend’s home. Exactly what took place there, and what led Miller and his girlfriend to go to the house of her brother, Jason Worley, and hit him with a handgun, remained unclear. Deputy State’s Attorney Thomas J. Fleckenstein said Miller was seen beating Worley in the street outside the home. Worley needed 11 staples in his head to close the wound. Hackner sentenced Miller to five years in prison, suspending all but the one year, and recommended work release. After his release, Miller will be on probation for five years. Miller’s girlfriend said she would help him look for a job.”

    After he was sentenced, Oliver asked, “What’s prison food like?”

    1 year for getting in a fight? Come on..i don’t think he is that dangerous that he needs to be locked up away from society for 1 year of time!

    1 year in jail, I imagine feels like about 3.. The food is $hit, the people are loud, obnoxious, and stink.. Seriously, the food is pretty much inedible (I went on a 4 day hunger strike) Feel bad for the big fella, he’s gonna go thru hell..

    patrick: he took out his gun and pistol whipped the guys head countless times until it opened up and needed eleven god damn staples. Not stitches, staples. That your idea of a fight?

    This was not a fight. This is the definition of attempted murder. He got off easy.

    ‘After his release, Miller will be on probation for five years. Miller’s girlfriend said she would help him look for a job’
