JAYSON WILLIAMS SENTENCED: Former NBA star Jayson Williams has been sentenced in New Jersey State Superior Court to five years and a minimum 18 months in prison for the fatal shooting in 2002 of his hired driver Costas Christofi. A retrial on an earlier reckless manslaughter count was avoided last month, when Williams pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in Christofi's death. Williams was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter in 2004. Williams will be eligible for parole after 18 months.
