Sebastian Telfair is out
NBA star Sebastian Telfair was reportedly released on $500,000 bail. He is currently fighting a 3.5 year prison sentence for possessing an illegal firearm back in a June 2017 incident, where he was caught with a trunk full of weapons and weed during a traffic stop.
Telfair was facing 15 years in the begenning, but his charges were dropped to second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Now his attorneys have filed an appeal and asked that Telfair be released as “the process plays out.” Telfair is now out of prison, but he could go back for 3.5 years, if he losses this appeal.
Telfair’s NBA career started in 2004, after he was drafted by Portland, he played in the league for 10 years, and then signed with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers, after his NBA career ended.
