Ex-Knicks point guard Raymond Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm on Wednesday according to the Daily News.

He admitted to having the unregistered pistol at his wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton’s, apartment, located on 61st street. He was charged in February after she turned in the weapon to police in the middle of an unpleasant divorce.

“I apologize. I know what I did was wrong,” Felton told Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Larry Stephen.

Felton, 30, is charged with a $5000 fine and 500 hours of community service.

He will serve his sentence out of state because of the trade from New York to now on the Dallas Mavericks.  Felton’s lawyer Jim Walden also requested additional time for the sentence to be served told the Daily News.

“We have to come up with a plan for how he’s going to do it that its acceptable for the DA’s office and consistent with his job responsibilities,” the lawyer said.

“It’s not 5 million hours. You’re telling me he doesn’t have 500 hours within the period of 18 months?” the judge said.

“Let’s put it on for one year. If you need an extension we can discuss it,” Stephen later decided.

Early on in the NBA off-season, Felton was traded along with Tyson Chandler to the Dallas Mavericks for Jose Calderon and Samuel Dalembert.
