ATLANTA (AP) - Former NBA player Daron “Mookie” Blaylock is sentenced to three years in jail after pleading guilty in a fatal crash.

Blaylock agreed to a plea deal on Monday including seven years in prison, with four years suspended. He will then be on probation for eight years the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/1t9ISWF ).

Authorities have said 43-year-old Monica Murphy died in the May 31, 2013 crash in Clayton County. Blaylock’s attorneys have said a medical condition caused him to blackout and no alcohol was found in his system.

To receive the suspended years off his prison sentence, Blaylock must perform community service and seek treatment for alcoholism.
