Crawford Sentenced to 90 Days in Jail
Less than a week after his latest victory, junior-welterweight champion Terence "Bud" Crawford learned that he would be soon spending time behind bars. Crawford has been sentenced to 90 days in jail stemming from a dispute at an auto body shop earlier this year.
The news was reported by the Omaha World Herald, which wrote that Crawford showed up to court wearing "a gray sweatshirt and old-school Michael Jordan high-tops."
Judge Marcena Hendrix gave Crawford the sentence after telling him: "You’ve continued to act as if you are above the law, and you are not."
In April, Crawford was accused of causing thousands of dollars of damaging in a local auto body shop after a dispute with the owner. The 29-year-old boxer allegedly removed his own car from the shop after being told that he owed the owner an outstanding fine.
Assistant prosecutor Makayla Maclin told the judge that Crawford had been "not truthful" during the investigation.
According to sentencing guidelines, Crawford will serve a total of roughly 53 days of the 90 day sentence.
