Basketball Analyst Greg Anthony Has Prostitute Solicitation Charges Dropped
Hoes can’t keep a dirty dog down…
Basketball analyst Greg Anthony will have a soliciting-prostitution charge dropped if he does 32 hours of community service and stays out of trouble for four months.
Anthony, his attorney and a prosecutor told a DC Superior Court judge Wednesday that they had agreed to the deal, called a deferred prosecution agreement, which is common in low-level misdemeanor cases in the city. Anthony, 47, will be allowed to complete the community service hours in Florida, where he lives.
The former NBA player only spoke briefly in court to acknowledge he wanted to enter into the agreement and understood it. Both Anthony and his attorney, Danny Onorato, declined to comment after the hearing.
Anthony was arrested at a Washington hotel on Jan. 16 on a charge of soliciting prostitution. A court document describing the arrest says he responded to an escort ad that authorities placed on classifieds website Backpage.com and arranged “a date” with an undercover officer. When he met the undercover officer at a hotel room, she told him she would charge him $80 for intercourse, the document says. Asked “You want me to dress up?,” Anthony allegedly responded, “Oh yeah.”
Anthony was suspended by CBS and Turner Sports following his arrest, and he apologized in a statement to his wife, family and colleagues, calling his actions a “lapse of judgment.”
Lapse of judgment our azz! Greg knows good-and-damn-well that this wasn’t his first ho rodeo. He just happen to get caught this time. Check the internet search history on his laptop…
