Former Wildcat Josiah Turner sentenced after agreement reached in DUI case

Former Arizona Wildcats point guard Josiah Turner was sentenced to two days in jail and fined $1,529 today in Pima County Justice Court after reaching a plea agreement pertaining to his extreme DUI case from last year, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

Turner pleaded guilty to a general charge of driving under the influence, but had six other charges dismissed. The incident occurred on April 26, 2012, and the original story the Daily Wildcat reported can be found here.

Turner played one suspension-riddled season for the Wildcats in 2011-12 before deciding to transfer to SMU. He never played there, though, choosing instead to play overseas in Hungary, before leaving that team for the Halifax Rainmen of Canada’s National Basketball League. After Turner was cut by the Rainmen, he moved on to play for the Summerside Storm in Canada.

Reports surfaced recently that he would be entering the 2013 NBA Draft.
