Javaris Crittenton Pleads Guilty to Murder

-

The Javaris Crittenton saga has come to an end. In a report by Atlanta’s WSBTV, the former NBA player and Georgia Tech star has pleaded guilty to murder in the 2011 shooting death of Julian Jones, a mother of four.

An emotional Crittenton called the shooting a “horrible accident.”

Prosecutors claimed that the alleged gang member had been aiming for a man who had robbed him days earlier.

As part of his pleading guilty, he will spend 23 years behind bars.

A 6-foot-5 guard, Crittenton spent one season with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and averaged 14.4 points and 5.8 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field. He then declared for the 2007 NBA Draft and was selected 19th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers.

In two seasons with LA, the Memphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards, he averaged 5.3 points over 16.4 minutes per game.
