Ex-NBA point guard Sebastian Telfair was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison on Monday Aug. 12, stemming from a gun possession charge.

Telfair's legal troubles began when the Brooklyn native was arrested in July 2017 after police found the loaded gun in his pickup following a traffic stop in Prospect Heights.

After the officer smelled the burning marijuana, he searched the vehicle and found multiple loaded guns, ammunition, extended magazines, and a bullet-proof vest in addition to marijuana, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office.

"This defendant exercised his right to a jury trial and was found guilty of possessing an illegal firearm", District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said.

Telfair was convicted of weapons possession in April and faced up to 15 years of prison before today's sentencing.

The deserving rapper, singer/songwriter and producer took to social media to celebrate shortly after the news was announced. The internet spoke and MTV listened.

New York has among the strictest gun laws in the country, and even though Telfair's guns were reportedly licensed in Florida, that doesn't carry much weight in New York City. "I am 34. I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family". I'm waiting for my daughter right now to get her period.

A yelling and crying Telfair then said, the Post reported, "Sebastian Telfair is going to jail for a. victimless crime". I go to the gun store.
