Ben Walace Gets 1 Year Probation For Gun Posession & DUI

Interesting.....what would Joe Schmo Get?

Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace was sentenced Tuesday to a year of probation but avoided jail time on drunken driving and gun possession charges that stemmed from a September traffic stop in suburban Detroit.
Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Shalina Kumar also sentenced Wallace to 30 hours of community service.
Assistant Prosecutor Robert Novey didn't ask for jail time and told Kumar that prosecutors wanted to treat Wallace "as if his name was Ben Smith."
Wallace, 37, declined to address the court during the short hearing. He pleaded guilty last month and could have been sentenced to up to 93 days in jail, but his cooperation with prosecutors and decision not to fight the charges worked in his favor.
