Lamar Odom has been sentenced to three years probation.
On Monday morning, the NBA free agent entered a no contest plea in exchange for 36 months of probation. According to reports, the troubled athlete was also ordered to pay $1,814 in fines and complete an alcohol education program by June 9.
Back in October, Odom plead not guilty to his DUI charge linked to his August arrest. The 36-year-old, who had been accused of battling a drug addiction, was arrested on August 30th after his car was spotted swerving on the freeway.
According to police, he failed numerous field sobriety tests and then refused to take any chemical tests after his arrest. Odom’s license was suspended after he refused to take a Breathalyzer test during the arrest.
Odom is currently training in Rhode Island and is close to signing a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. “I don’t know what our plans are yet. I like Lamar. I want him to be in the NBA. And if things go right, here,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers told the LA Times in November.
“Having said that, I just want him to do well at the end. Obviously if he does well, we’d like for it to be for us. But let’s say he doesn’t come here, and he does well in the NBA, I’d be just as happy, honestly. I look at a guy, and I think he’s a good guy, and he needs another shot,” Rivers said.
