Philadelphia 76ers star guard Allen Iverson agreed to undergo random drug-testing every month for two years and forfeit his handgun as part of a plea agreement today stemming from his arrest Aug. 3 on misdemeanor marijuana and gun charges.
If he fails to comply with all facets of the plea agreement, Iverson, the rookie of the year in the NBA this past season, could be brought back to court and sentenced to up to 12 months in jail or fined $2,500, according to New Kent Commonwealth's Attorney Linwood Gregory, who prosecuted the case.
"He has a great deal at risk if he violates any of the terms of this plea agreement," Gregory said. He cited Iverson's cooperation during his arrest as one of the reasons the defendant was allowed to enter into the plea agreement.
