Jalen Rose was sentenced to 20 Days in prison after he pleaded guilty in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan to driving while intoxicated after he was pulled over on May 25.

He was facing 93 days in jail if it had gone to trial, so he decided to spend less time of the lock out in lock up.

It will be interesting to see if there is any further punishment from ESPN, where Rose serves as an analyst.

    ESPN will discipline him somehow but I don’t think he’ll lose his job.

  2. Bweezy says:

    I don’t have a problem with the jail sentence. I just hope the judge that issued the jail sentence is consistent with other first time convicted DUI offenders.

  3. A2R says:

    First rule of DUI…always decline the field test. Charges dropped. Then seek help or hire a driver.
