Former NBA guard Javaris Crittenton was sentenced to 23 years in prison and 17 years of probation on Wednesday after entering a guilty plea on charges related to the 2011 shooting death of an Atlanta woman.

The 27-year-old Crittenton — who played for the Los Angeles LakersMemphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards in a two-year NBA career and is best known by NBA fans for his 2009 firearms-in-the-locker-room confrontation with then-teammate Gilbert Arenas — pleaded guilty to charges of voluntary manslaughter with a weapon and aggravated assault with a firearm. Prosecutors dropped the murder charge against him as part of the plea agreement.
