Sebastian Telfair Has Already Been Released From Prison Again (For Now)


Last month, former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was sentenced to three and a half years in prison, after he was convicted of felony criminal possession of a weapon by a jury, earlier this year.

In June of 2017, New York City police stopped Telfair, who last played in China, at 2:50 a.m. finding a lit joint, three loaded handguns, a semiautomatic rifle, ammunition, and a ballistic vest.

This was not the first time in Telfair’s career, that he got into trouble because of his guns. He was fined by the Blazers in 2006, for having a loaded gun hidden in a pillow case on the team’s private plane. Then, during his time in Boston, he was cut from the team him after police had stopped him with a loaded gun in his car. Back then, he pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a weapon and was sentenced to three years of probation.

But, according to TMZ Sports, Telfair has already been released from prison again…. for now.


“Telfair and his legal team appealed the sentence … and asked that while the process plays out, they let Telfair bail out of prison.

TMZ Sports has learned a judge agreed to those terms Thursday — with an ankle monitor clearly a part of the deal — and Telfair is now a free man.

Telfair was released on $500,000 bail.

As part of his agreement with the court, Telfair must surrender his passports and remain in New York City.

Telfair also agreed to be confined to house arrest from 7 PM to 7 AM daily while also wearing an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet.”
