Former WNBA star, Chamique Holdsclaw was indicted on two counts of aggravated assault, three counts of criminal damage, and one count of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony–which could equal 65 years in prison.
Back in November, Chamique was involved in an argument with her ex-girlfriend and former teammate, Jennifer Lacy. Chamique allegedly smashed the window of Jennifer’s car with a baseball bat, and fired a shot through the car while Jennifer was in the car. Chamique turned herself in days later.
According to USA Today, Chamique is planning to enter a plea of not guilty. Her attorney will argue that she did not assault her girlfriend but she did assault the car. Another factor in her case will be her mental state. Chamique has reportedly attempted suicide in the past, and their argument occurred after an “emotional situation” between the two of them.
After her grand jury appearance, Chamique vented via Instagram:
65 years is a long time for a crime. Do you think that’s fair?
