Wainstein included dozens of letters of support for the former all star, including from his father, his high school coach, Washington Mystics player Alana Beard, ESPNlosangeles.com writer Dave McMenamin and from several heads of mentoring and youth groups where Arenas has volunteered. The only letter of support from the Wizards came from Sashia R. Jones, director of Wizards community relations.

One of the ongoing debates during Gilbert's gun saga has been the Wizards' support of Gilbert throughout the investigation. The latest from Keith L. Alexander adds an interesting nugget of information to the debate. In fairness, the Wizards could have intended the letter to speak on behalf of the entire organization. You can read Jones' letter for yourself on page 78 of this PDF for yourself and draw your own conclusions. It appears to me that she is speaking on her own behalf, but the letter was written on Wizards' stationery. UPDATE: As Dan Steinberg points out, the Wizards' equipment manager also wrote a letter.

Washington Post: Prosecutors recommend Gilbert Arenas get three months in jail

39

They also recommend he get three months years probation and do 300 hours of community service. UPDATE: Adrian Wojanrowski reports that Gilbert sent a mass text message to his friends telling them his phone will be shut off until Friday (the sentencing date) and that he'll call them if he wants them. I have no idea how Woj found this out. Maybe Gil considers him a friend? UPDATE: Here's a copy of the prosecution's full brief, which alleges that Arenas has changed his story in a self-serving matter. The Washington City Paper reprints Arenas' text messages to a teammate that show Arenas covered this up. I'm curious to hear the defense's take on all of this. UPDATE: Woj reports Arenas' defense team sent out a "sentencing memorandum" that includes mostly character endorsements. Sigh. I was hoping for a response to the facts presented by the prosecution. UPDATE: I just got a copy of the sentencing memo. I'm going to need some time to look this over, but the memo does say that "Mr. Arenas’ intent that day, though terribly misguided, was neither malicious nor violent in any way." UPDATE: Here's a copy of the defense's memo. Feel free to peruse.

Meh, what else is he supposed to say? I just find it funny that it came at a PETA event. Gil's affiliated with them now.
