Jayson Williams -- Another Year Behind Bars for DWI

8/20/2010 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NBA star Jayson Williams just got sentenced to a year behind bars for his DWI case ... but that sentence will have to wait until AFTER he finishes his current 5 years hard time for the shooting death of his limo driver.

Jayson Williams Sentenced to Jail

Williams was arrested for DWI back in January after he slammed his Mercedes-Benz into a tree in New York City.

Moments ago in Manhattan Criminal Court, Williams -- through his lawyer -- plead guilty to DWI and was slapped with the 1-year sentence, and he also has to pay $16,643 for the tree he hit.

Less than two months after the DWI, Williams began serving his five year sentence for the 2002 limo driver shooting.

what a shame. clearly he has a problem with drinking. that is after all the key factor in the shooting of the limo driver. he should be ordered to rehab after prison, not more jail. what a fall from high. and didn't he divorce his wife. he needs jesus!

Celebrities Suck    

so he's only getting 5 years for killing his limo driver? celeb. If a none celebrity kills a taxi driver that person will get the maximum sentence not 5 years... This is what you call celebrity justice!!!

I don't know why Black people think they can do what White people do and get the same thing in court. There are no Black Lindsey Lohan's, Charlie Sheens or Mel Gibsons. In court they are just black people. White people love to say that justice is blind in the U.S. And they are right. When it comes to them. But when you are black, justices' eyes are wide open. It sees you coming from a mile away. And it will sentence you accordingly.

Jason Williams is no stranger to the joint.Did'nt he do time before his NBA career? I would'nt call one year for DWI a celeb sentence.Look at Lilo and Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, That's celeb justice.When you get 18 days for the same crime. All his time is for being stupid... He should be in the same cell as OJ.The stupid cell block.

After he serves his time and is granted parole he should be given a chance to get his life back not have to serve another sentence.

Q    

membas he went on the bawling his eyes out tour with a stop at Harpo Studios and he and his wife did the 'we're christians" thing. Dude then goes out and parties hard, drugging, drinking, and we're supposed to feel sorry for his murderous self. Somebody give the Sports "stars" the memo---the public and especially judges, dont care anymore about your Tiger Woods heroics. You and Roger Clemens and the rest of them are going down. Just wish you would have gotten what you deserved for the killing---Life.

Now go home get your shinebox.

The guy had made some big mistakes. Playing with a weapon while drinking and driving very drunk. He should have gotten more time for killing. I do feel sorry that he has to pay so highly for doing very stupid things.
