Not a good time to be Sebastian Telfair.
Now, following Telfair’s sentencing, he apparently had a meltdown in the courtroom, per Complex.
After Monday’s sentence Telfair was taken away by authorities. He had faced a possible penalty of up to 15 years in prison.
At his sentencing, Telfair accused the entire proceeding of being a set-up. He claimed that several witnesses lied and emotionally asked the judge to intervene to keep him from being sent to prison. Telfair mentioned both his family and his community organizing as reasons that he shouldn’t be sent to prison.
“Please don’t take me from society right now,” Telfair said. “I am 34. I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family. I’m waiting for my daughter right now to get her period. Real mental illness because I wasn’t around… She hasn’t even gotten her period yet.”
Sebastian is fortunate to only get 3 1/2 years instead of the 15 he was facing. Although I don’t see why he tried to use the excuse of playing in China to get out of his situation.
A video surfaced of his courtroom breakdown and it wasn’t pretty.
