Former NBA Player Pleads Guilty to Pistol-Whipping

Wednesday November 2nd, 2011

Former NBA player Oliver Miller pleaded guilty to pistol-whipping charges, CBS Sports reports.

Miller, 41, was initially charged in April for pistol-whipping a man, later found to be his girlfriend’s brother. He was formally charged with first-degree assault and carrying a handgun.

The maximum sentence for the charges sits at 25 years. However, reports claim that though Deputy State Attorney Thomas J. Fleckstein will seek jail time, it will be nowhere near the maximum considering Miller has no prior criminal charges and has entered a guilty plea.
