Ex-NBA player Sebastian Telfair was meted with a three and half years imprisonment for illegal gun possession.

According to the Brooklyn’s district attorney the 34-year-old Telfair was convicted in April of one count of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, which stemmed from an arrest in January 2017.

During the arrest, police recovered a semi-automatic rifle, ammunition, a ballistic vest and marijuana inside inside a vehicle that Telfair drove in Brooklyn.

“This defendant exercised his right to a jury trial and was found guilty of possessing an illegal firearm,” district attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement.

Telfair was also arrested in 2007 a when police found a loaded handgun in his car. He pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a weapon and was sentenced to three years of probation in that case.

Telfair last played in China in 2014. He was a first-round draft pick by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2004 NBA Draft. He also played for the Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves.
