Stanley Wilson Prison
February 5, 2012 by staff
Stanley Wilson Prison, Former running back Stanley Wilson, whose NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals was plagued by drug problems, was sentenced to 22 years in prison Friday for stealing about $130,000 worth of property.
Wilson, 37, was convicted last month of stealing jewelry, camera equipment and other valuables from a Beverly Hills home Jan. 24, 1998.
Under the state’s “three strikes” law, prosecutors were seeking a 25-years-to-life term because Wilson, a former two-time City player of the year at Wilmington Banning High, had already served time for burglarizing two homes in Long Beach.
Superior Court Judge Frank J. Johnson eliminated one of the “strikes” against Wilson, but sentenced him to the maximum on two others.
In throwing out the third strike, Johnson cited Wilson’s “mental problems.”
Besides having a cocaine habit, Wilson suffers from bipolar disorder, defense attorney H. Clay Jacke said. The affliction is characterized by alternating states of mania and depression.
Wilson, who lives in nearby Westchester, sobbed during much of the hearing in West Los Angeles Superior Court.
