            Former Sacramento Kings basketball player Antoine Wright was sentenced today to three years of informal probation for a drunken driving arrest Nov. 5 in Rocklin.

Wright, 26, who was not present at the sentencing, was also given a 15-day jail term by Placer County Superior Court Judge Alan Pineschi, who said the defendant could apply for alternative sentencing such as a work project or home detention.

Wright’s attorney, William Portanova, entered a plea of no contest for his client to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.

Two other misdemeanor counts – unlicensed driver and driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher – were dismissed in the plea arrangement with the Placer County District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutor Matt Block said the former Kings player had a blood alcohol level of 0.20 percent. In California, a person is considered legally intoxicated at a level of 0.08 percent.

Judge Pineschi also imposed a fine of $450 against Wright, who was released by the Sacramento Kings on Nov. 29. Portanova told the court that Wright is no longer in California.

Pineschi, who gave Wright credit for one day of time served, said the defendant must report to the Placer County jail on March 30 to serve the remaining 14 days unless he applies for and is granted alternative sentencing conditions from the Placer County Probation Department.
