Prosecutors: Jail Gilbert Arenas for 3 Months

Kavanaugh wrote. “If any other individual without fame, power and the wealth of this defendant, brought four firearms into the District for the purpose of a similar confrontation,” the prosecutor wrote, “the government would seek their incarceration and the court would almost certainly give it.” Yeah, well, tough talk from a guy who let Arenas plead out.
