Former NBA player, Oliver Miller has been sentenced to one year in prison for pistol whipping a man at a family cookout, The Baltimore Sun reports.
In April, Miller was charged with first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, having a handgun on person, using a handgun in a violent crime, possessing a handgun in a vehicle, disorderly conduct, and other related charges. Last fall he pleaded guilty.
“I apologize for the wrong I have done,” Miller told Anne Arundel Circuit Judge Paul A. Hackner, “just a man protecting the people I love.”
Judge Hackner sentenced Miller to five years in prison, suspending all but one year, and recommended work release. After his release he will be on probation for five years.
