The sentence was far less than Jason Miskiri could have received after pleading guilty to conspiring to distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana.

After the sentencing, the one-time NBA player declined to talk with WUSA9 about what took him from college basketball star, philanthropist and successful restaurant owner to a guy who was bringing in and selling millions of dollars of marijuana in his own community.
