ATLANTA -- Former NBA All-Star Daron ''Mookie'' Blaylock has been sentenced to three years in jail after pleading guilty in car crash that killed a woman in Georgia.
His attorney Amanda Palmer tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitutution that Blaylock agreed Monday to a plea deal on a vehicular homicide charge Monday. It included seven years in prison, with four suspended. He will then be on probation for eight years.
Forty-three-year-old Monica Murphy died in the May 31, 2013, crash. Blaylock's attorneys have said a medical condition caused the ex-player to black out and no alcohol was found in his system.
Blaylock also must perform community service and seek treatment for alcoholism.
Blaylock was a first-round draft pick by the New Jersey Nets in 1989. He played for the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors and in the 1994 NBA All-Star game.
