Omaha boxing light welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford was led away in handcuffs this morning after a judge sentenced him to jail for an incident at an auto body shop last April.
Matt Kahler is Crawford’s attorney and says, “The judge set some upfront time for him and hopefully what we will do is get an appeal bond set today and hopefully get him released today and then file an appeal up at the district court to appeal his sentence.”
Crawford is facing 50 days in jail and two years’ probation. Crawford was found guilty last September of disorderly conduct and property damage at Extreme Custom Fleet and Auto Spa in Omaha. He was also ordered to pay more than $4,600 in restitution for damages to a vehicle lift at the shop. He and four others tried to take the vehicle after a disagreement over the work done to his 1984 Monte Carlo.
