ADEL, Iowa (AP) -- Former Iowa basketball star Pierre Pierce was sentenced Friday to two years in prison for assaulting a former girlfriend at her apartment last January.

The 22-year-old player wept as he hugged his parents and relatives after he was sentenced. Moments later, he was handcuffed and escorted a block down the sidewalk to the county jail.

Reading from notes, Pierce apologized to the victim and blamed himself for what happened.

"Not a single day goes by that I don't think about how things could have been different," Pierce told the judge. "Truly, deep down in my heart, I am sorry for my actions."

It's too bad...wasted talent. However, if I'm correct, I think he was a repeat offender. Gotta pay up...strange though, last night on local news they reported 4 years?

From what I can tell, it was 2+1+1 years on various charges, served concurrently.

I went to Iowa for a year and that guy was a real jackass in every sense of the word. I don't know much about his crimes, or anything like that but he probably deserved it. Karma will get you every time.
