Guerrero Pleads Out To Disorderly Conduct on NY Gun Charge

tssNEW YORK, NY, May 14 – Early today, Six-Time and Four-Division World Champion Robert Guerrero appeared in New York State Supreme Court for Queens County where all firearm possession charges were dismissed in connection with his March 28 arrest at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. Guerrero pled guilty to disorderly conduct, a violation and not a crime, was fined $250 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service which he will be allowed to perform in his home state of California.

Guerrero was arrested on March 28 when checking in his luggage at JFK while returning to training camp in Las Vegas following a press tour in connection with his May 4 fight against Floyd Mayweather. As he was checking in, he made sure to advise authorities that they needed to be aware that he had a firearm, which was unloaded and in a locked safe box within his luggage which was to be checked. Guerrero was carrying no ammunition and was within his legal right to possess such firearm in the state in which he resides.

“I'm pleased that the District Attorney's Office considered my case carefully and resolved it fairly,” said Guerrero. “I never intended to violate New York law, but I know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse. Lesson learned. I'm happy this incident is behind me and looking forward to returning to the ring as well as serving my community as ordered by the court.”

Danggit! Once again Jesus didn't show up for the humbug. Maybe there are a lot of Romans in the Big Apple. And those who don't learn from adverse history are condemned to repeat it and be beat down again. Holla!

Okay, Amayseng! I could buy that one. Because the Big Apple could've struck it to him like Sin City did OJ Simpson. Danggit! How can a jury give you 40 years for stealing your on syet? And the jury claim that they weren't bothered by Cali letting him get away with double murder. This court jive is like the game -- "The threatre of the unexpected." Holla!

-amayseng :

40 years is ridiculous. Making up for the double murder. Oj looks like he's been getting 7 meals a day in the joint.

-ali :

Unbelievable!! A gun charge in NY is automatic jail time for black folks even when we shoot ourselves.
