Raymond Felton was arraigned on two counts of weapons possession, sources told SNY’s and The Knicks Blog’s Adam Zagoria. He will not be charged with menacing.
Felton’s bail will be set at $25,000 and he will face an order of protection against his estranged wife, Zagoria’s sources said.
He will face one D and one E felony, Zagoria’s sources said.
Felton’s case will be adjourned until June 2 and until then he can travel with the team.
“That’s good news for Raymond Felton in that if he’s convicted a judge would have sentencing discretion and also this means if he works out a plea deal the chances of going to jail would be lower,” Michael McCann, Sports Illustrated and NBA TV legal analyst, said. “Based on what we heard early in the day this is a positive turn of events for Raymond Felton.”
