Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison Monday on a gun possession charge, according to Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez. 

Telfair was convicted of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in April. He was arrested in July 2017 after police found a loaded gun in his pickup truck during a traffic stop in Prospect Heights.

According to the Brooklyn DA’s office, Telfair was pulled over after making a U-turn off a median in a pickup truck with his headlights off.

When officers approached the truck, “the smell of marijuana was present, as was a lit marijuana cigarette in the car’s console, according to testimony.”

When police searched the vehicle, they found “a loaded .45 caliber gun in the console” among other weapons.
