Former NBA Player Pleads Guilty to Pistol-Whipping
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. Miller played for six different teams across his nine seasons in the NBA, the majority in the 1990s.
