(Maurice Clarett and friends)
According to the Associated Press: Maurice Clarett has agreed to a plea bargain that will send him to prison for at least 3 1/2 years.
Clarett's deal with prosecutors in Columbus came today as jury selection was set to begin in his robbery trial.
The plea covers that case and another that arose out of a police chase last month that ended with officers finding four loaded weapons in his vehicle.
I'm hoping that those 3 1/2 years serve him well. I hope that when he's released, he comes back a better person. It really seems to me that he has some issues, and probably needs help. I know that going to prison is not necessarily help, but it can actually do people some good (sometimes anyway).
