MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP)-A psychologist was sentenced to 33 years in prison Friday for conspiring to murder the stepfather of Boston Celtics star Ray Allen.
Ernest Garlington was convicted in November in a murder-for-hire plot against fellow psychologist Derek Hopson. Once married to Garlington's wife, Hopson is now married to Flora Allen-Hopson, mother of the Celtics guard.
Hopson wasn't injured when shots were fired at him in 2003 outside the Middletown clinic where he worked and had been beaten with a golf club less than a year earlier.
Garlington was sentenced in Middlesex Superior Court.
Ray Allen was in Atlanta for Game 6 of the first-round playoff series between the Celtics and the Atlanta Hawks.
