Yesterday, I received the sentencing memorandum on behalf of Gilbert Arenas, along with those exhibits to the memorandum that are not publicly accessible. The memorandum was provided to the government and the judge last week and it was formally filed yesterday. I am attaching it, in its entirety, at the bottom of this post.
The request by his attorneys is that Gilbert Arenas receive probation with community service, with no mention of jail time. Gilbert Arenas is portrayed as a normal human being; someone who is not as bad as the media has made him out to be, but not someone without any faults, either. There is a strong focus on his charity and his philanthropy.
The crime is carrying a pistol without a license. More specifically, Arenas carried four guns into Washington D.C. and the Washington Wizards’ arena. His attorneys claim that Arenas had no malicious or violent intent.
The document (127 pages worth of words) is full of exhibits attesting to Arenas’ good character. Again, if you are interested in skimming through it, enjoy it below.
