Oliver Miller pleads guilty to pistol-whipping

3 Nov

Back in April, former NBA player Oliver Miller was arrested for allegedly pistol-whipping his girlfriend’s brother at a family barbecue cookout.

Tuesday, he pleaded guilty in a Maryland court.  According to the Baltimore Sun,  Miller entered a guilty plea in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to charges of first-degree assault and carrying a handgun.

Maryland’s Deputy State’s Attorney Thomas J. Fleckenstein said that Miller followed Jason Worley from the cookout, and was seen hammering Worley in the head and face with a handgun outside Worley’s home before driving away. Worley suffered a concussion and other injuries, the prosecutor said, but the gun was not found.

Miller played nine seasons in the NBA, mostly in the 1990s, averaging 7.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. The journeyman center played for the Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves and even had a stint with the Harlem Globetrotters.

The maximum sentence for this is 25 years and Fleckenstein said he will pursue jail time for Miller.  He is unlikely to see much jail time however, as Miller has no prior convictions and plead guilty.
