NBA's Darren CollisonPleads Guilty In Domestic Violence Case

Sacramento Kings player Darren Collison just pled GUILTY in his domestic violence case -- but won't spend a minute behind bars ... if he plays his cards right.
As we previously reported, the 29-year-old point guard was arrested on May 30th after his wife said she had been assaulted at their home in Placer County. When cops arrived, they saw visible injuries on her.
As part of the plea deal, Collison was sentenced to 20 days in jail -- but will most likely NOT actually spend time behind bars.
Instead, he will be in an "alternative sentencing program" -- which requires him to complete a certain amount of community service (pending approval from the probation dept.). If he does NOT complete the required amount, the judge could order him to serve out the 20 days in jail.
He also got 3 years probation and was ordered to complete a 52 week batterer treatment course.
