Former NBA point guard Sebastian Telfair was found guilty on a firearm charge on Wednesday, and is facing up to 15 years in prison, according to TMZ.
Telfair, who was the No. 13 overall pick in the 2004 NBA draft, was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, in June 2017 after police pulled him over for driving without his headlights on.
Police found multiple weapons, ammunition and marijuana in the car.

He pled not guilty to the charges in October, but was found guilty on Wednesday of felony criminal possession of a weapon, per the report.
He has reportedly had multiple legal issues since his playing career ended.
According to TMZ, Telfair was sued in November by American Express over more than $40,000 worth of unpaid credit card debt, and had a restraining order placed against him in 2018 by his estranged wife and children after an incident where he allegedly smashed a car window outside of her house.
Telfair was a stud entering into the league, but never was as good as promised.
He averaged 7.4 points and 3.5 rebounds throughout his career.
