Kings forward Jarret Stoll faces up to four years in prison after being charged with felony drug possession of cocaine.
If convicted, it is very unlikely that Stoll will spend four years in jail. He may only get probation. That’s up to the discretion of the judge, according to the Orange County Register.
In addition to cocaine possession, Stoll was also arrested on MDMA possession. However, there is reportedly only mention of the cocaine possession in the complaint filed today by Clark County’s district attorney.
That may be good news for Stoll. From an ESPN.com article dated June 11:
One Las Vegas-based criminal drug attorney said the possession of cocaine, a class E felony, is less concerning than that of the MDMA, a class B felony and a non-probation offense. Under Nevada penal code, any amount of a schedule 1 substance over 4 grams triggers state drug-trafficking laws.
Stoll, 32, is to appear in court on July 1.
Coincidentally, that is the same day he is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
