Earlier this month former NBA player Jayson Williams was acquitted of manslaughter in the shotgun slaying of a limo driver at his New Jersey mansion. But he was found guilty of trying to cover up the shooting. No date has been set for the sentencing.
Let’s see if we have this right. Williams was convicted of four charges related to tampering with evidence, concocting a cover story for witnesses and trying to make the death look like a suicide. In other words Williams, who did not testify in his own defense, was guilty of covering up a non-crime. Air ball.
