Jalen Rose Jail Time - Rose will report to the Oakland County Jail on Tuesday to begin serving a sentence of 20 days. He also has to serve some community service. Despite his philanthropy and criminal history, the former NBA player will serve the time as a statement to the community, a judge on Wednesday.
“That is the answer to drunk driving,” said Judge Kimberly Small in a room filled with the District Court in Bloomfield Hills 48. “Sending a message that will have serious implications.”
On Tuesday, Rose will report to the Oakland County Jail to begin serving a sentence of 20 days for the first time drunk drivers. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard refused to describe where Rose is placed, except to say it will be in a security cell rather than in the general population. Rose, 38, is granted a day of good weather for seven days served, which means he could be released as early as August 18.
Rose lawyers accused of abusing small at her discretion. Most judges in the Detroit metropolitan area and across the country condemns first offenders to time served or a few days in jail if your blood alcohol level is above 0.17%, a report two days of press freedom released this week showed. Rose, a former University of Michigan basketball star who spent 13 seasons in the NBA, was arrested March 11 after he crashed his Cadillac Escalade in Walnut Lake Road West Bloomfield. 0.08% was recorded in a preliminary breath test at the scene and later registered a 0.12% blood test. Under Michigan law, the 0.08% is legally drunk.By: Jennifer Hong
