Sebastian Telfair Out Of Prison Just Days After 3.5-Year Sentence In Gun Case
Sebastian Telfair is FREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
The ex-NBA star and former H.S. prodigy is out of prison just days after he was sentenced to 3.5 years in his gun case … but there's a chance Telfair could end up back behind bars.
Here's the deal … 34-year-old Telfair was convicted of possessing an illegal firearm stemming from a June 2017 incident where he was caught with an arsenal of weapons during a traffic stop.
He was facing up to 15 YEARS in prison for the crime … but instead, on Aug. 12, a judge ordered him to serve 3.5 years.
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.
Unclear how much Telfair's bail was — we're working on it … but we do know he was spotted with friends on Thursday.
Telfair — who famously appeared on Sports Illustrated's cover as a high schooler — played for several teams in the NBA from 2004 to 2015. He was a Trail Blazer's 1st-round pick in the '04 NBA Draft.
