Jereme Richmond figured by now he’d be on the road to NBA stardom. Instead, there’s a good chance he’ll be spending at least a few years in prison. Richmond, the former McDonald’s All-American from Waukegan, on Thursday was found guilty on two of three counts of harassing a witness.
Richmond was convicted of threatening his probation officer in April, three months shy of when his probation for bringing a gun to his ex-girlfriend’s house was to end.
The Lake County News-Sun has all the trial details.
Richmond, who spent one year at Illinois before declaring for the NBA draft, remains in Lake County jail on $250,000 bond. He faces three to seven years in prison at his sentencing hearing, which is set for Sept. 26.
