Javaris had his day in court yesterday, and walked away with a year of probation for his role in the locker room gun mess involving Gilbert Arenas: “Wizards reserve guard Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court on Monday to a misdemeanor gun possession charge stemming from his locker room confrontation with Gilbert Arenas at the Verizon Center last month. As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors agreed to drop a second misdemeanor charge and recommend a sentence of probation. Senior Judge Bruce Beaudin on Monday agreed with the prosecutor’s suggestion and sentenced Crittenton to one year of unsupervised probation and $1,250 in fines. Crittenton also agreed to begin a mentoring program to District children and work with the NBA on relief for Haiti earthquake victims. Crittenton, 22, was charged this afternoon with unlawful possession of a firearm and attempting to carry a pistol without a license, both misdemeanors. Each charge carried a maximum year in jail.”
