    Basketball player who robbed Sabathia freed from prison

    Associated Press


    CLEVELAND - A former college basketball player who robbed Indians pitcher C.C. Sabathia of $44,000 in cash and jewelry in 2002 has been freed after serving two years and one month of a four-year prison sentence.

    Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Russo ordered the release Monday of Damon Stringer, one of two former Cleveland State players who pleaded guilty to robbing Sabathia at gunpoint at a Cleveland hotel party.

    Stringer, 27, will be monitored at home electronically until he finds a full-time job, and is under two years of intensive probation. Any violation could return Stringer to prison for up to 11 years, Russo said.

    Stringer's teammate at Cleveland State, Jamaal Harris, was released from the same sentence in June. Russo delayed Stringer's release request because Stringer had gotten into a prison fight.

    Stringer and Harris, who had been teammates at Cleveland Heights High School, were pursuing professional basketball careers in Europe before the holdup.

    Stringer also played basketball at Ohio State but left the Buckeyes because of legal troubles. He was selected Ohio Mr. Basketball in 1995 as the top prep player in the state.

    i know a kid from my neighboring town that went to cleveland state for a year. he sucked and nobody could figure out why he got the scholarship, but he did. one year later he wasnt even playing ball at the local community college.

    it was around that time too. maybe a year before.

    Stringer attacked my buddy when we were at tOSU. My friend accidentally backed into his car. Stringer freaked out and jumped on the hood of my buddies car. He proceeded to smash his sun-roof and dented almost every peice of his car by kicking it. My buddy was scared and called the cops. I believe this resulted in Stringer's removal from tOSU. What a waste of talent. Reminds me of Greg Simpson
