Jason Richardson may face jail time

Postby JSM on Thu Aug 28, 2003 4:08 pm


A Michigan jury has convicted Jason Richardson of domestic violence. He faces up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Authorities accused Richardson of shoving his ex-girlfriend so hard that she fell, struck her head against a wall with so much force that it created a hole in the wall. Richardson claims he was acting in self-defense.

The incident took place in April at the woman's apartment. Richardson had gone there to pick up their 3-year-old daughter.

Michigan isnt the best place to be caught up in a domestic dispute. He probably wont see jail time because of who he is. It also depends on whether he has had any prior charges or convictions. I was surprised they convicted him though, he is somewhat of legend in Saginaw. I would be shocked if he got more than 2 weeks if any time at all.

Don't believe those lies, son! The only lies worth believing are the ones in the Bible! Can I get an amen?

Would Richardson miss part of the season if convicted of the domestic battery? :whipit:

He'd probably get suspended for one or two games...
