Terence Crawford Sentenced to 53 Days in Jail in Body Shop Case

By David P. Greisman

Terence Crawford was sentenced Thursday to jail time on a pair of misdemeanor charges stemming from an April incident at an Omaha, Nebraska, body shop, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

He was sentenced to 90 days in jail, but "under sentencing guidelines, he will serve about 53 days," the article said.

Crawford was found guilty in September on one count of property damage and one count of disorderly conduct. He was found not guilty of trespassing.

“You’ve continued to act as if you are above the law, and you are not,” a judge told Crawford at his sentencing hearing on Thursday morning, according to the report.

The Omaha native was accused of being part of a group that arrived at the body shop to retrieve his vehicle. The body shop owner, however, said that Crawford still owed money for the service. Crawford’s lawyer said at the time that there was a disagreement between the fighter and owner about the work that had been done and how much he was charged.

Crawford had been accused of going into the shop and taking his vehicle off a hydraulic lift. In the process, according to what the owner claimed in the Omaha World-Herald report, Crawford damaged the shop’s machine.

Crawford, 29, is 30-0 and has 21 knockouts. He held the WBO world lightweight title in 2014 before moving up to 140 pounds last year and capturing the WBO super lightweight championship.

He then made two defenses before unifying titles – and restarting the championship lineage – with a wide decision July 23 over Ukraine’s Viktor Postol, then the WBC super lightweight champion. Crawford is coming off an easy eighth-round technical knockout of John Molina Jr. on Saturday night in Omaha.

(This story has been updated to include the newspaper's clarification that Crawford was sentenced to 90 days, not 50, but that he will serve about 53 days in jail.)
