Tuesday morning he pled guilty to those charges, reports the Detroit News.
Wallace, 37, of Bloomfield Hills appeared before Judge Shalina Kumar and entered guilty pleas to charges of driving while intoxicated and possession of a firearm while operating a vehicle when intoxicated. Both charges are misdemeanors that carry a maximum jail sentence of up to 93 days.
Under the agreement, assistant prosecutor Rob Novy told Kumar his office had agreed to dismiss a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, a felony that can carry up to five years in prison.
Prosecutors said Wallace has been cooperative with throughout the process and does not have a criminal record. So don’t expect a particularly tough sentence.
Wallace will not be getting a fine from the NBA, as would normally happen, as there is not collective bargaining agreement in place. However, the judge set a Dec. 13 date for him to be sentenced, which could interfere with his NBA duties. If the lockout is solved by then.
