Marshon Lattimore felony gun charges dropped, sentenced to 1-year of non-reporting probation for misdemeanor


Recommended Posts

Marshon Lattimore was sentenced to one year of probation last week after a felony gun charge was dismissed and he pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge instead. The probation supervision is "non-reporting," meaning Lattimore does not have to appear in person. Lattimore was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

Lattimore was arrested in March in his hometown of Cleveland, and he was initially charged with a fourth-degree felony for possessing a loaded handgun that was believed to be stolen. That charge was dismissed last week, however. Lattimore's attorney, Marcus Sidoti, said Lattimore did not know the gun had ever been stolen.

Lattimore pled guilty to the misdemeanor charge of failing to promptly inform officers that he was carrying a concealed handgun when he was a passenger in a car that was stopped for multiple traffic violations. Lattimore had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, but video of the arrest showed that Lattimore did not immediately tell officers he had the gun until they asked.

It's unclear if Lattimore will face any discipline from the NFL. League spokesman Brian McCarthy said, "We continue to monitor all developments in the matter which remains under review."

Can't say I blame Marshon, Gang Enforcement squads are very high strung and quite a bit more dangerous than your average guy on the streets (don't get me started on these militarized squads being used to enforce minor traffic violations). I don't know if I would be rushing to tell them I had a loaded gun on me (even with a permit to carry it) either, it just heightens tensions for everyone. Obviously Marshon has much better reason than I to fear what the repercussions of that statement could mean for him.

Really tough break, and a questionable law. But, you've gotta follow them.

 

 

$1,000 fine and a probation he doesn't even need to check in for.

He's got a squeaky clean record outside of this.

Lets see what Goodell has in store for him!

Sounds like you're challenging Goodell to lay the hammer down. Bold strategy.

If he's gonna lay the hammer down let's do it now and get it over with since this season is over.

He'll wait until the offseason lol 

Match us up with the Bucs or something and give Lattimore a 1-game ban.

I still don't know if there was only one gun, which was stolen ,  in the car that Lattimore took the rap for because he was riding in a car with felons and no tail lights, or if the felons in the car also had guns, and only Marshon's was stolen.

He had the gun on his person. He didn't know it was stolen and he did have a permit to carry it, but failed to tell the cops about it and that was what he was ultimately convicted for. 

 

 Cops asked Lattimore if there were guns in the car, and he responded by saying that he had one in the groin area of his pants.

"You’re gonna shoot your d--- off," an officer is heard saying to Lattimore as he removed the gun from his pants. Another officer added, "Get yourself a holster, brother."

Well that answers that.  I had been curious if he took the rap for it because of the convicted felons in the car.

No I think he is just a millionaire dumb enough to not buy a brand new gun, and dumb enough to get a concealed permit but not read up on having to notify police immediately

And dumb enough to then also ride around at night with lights that don't work.

In any case, the stolen part is what matters, and no good reason a millionaire can't get a brand new gun.

Sounds like he pled to a pretty minor offense in the grand scheme of things, so no punishment would be my guess. I've seen harsher Probation sentences on disorderly conduct charges. This is about as soft of a slap on the wrist the criminal justice system can give you on something like this.

Also I'm sure Roger realizes this season has been punishment enough for us Saints fans to watch on a weekly basis lol.
