Junior welterweight titlist Terence Crawford gets dealt some bad news just days after successfully defeating John Molina Jr. on HBO.

Crawford has just been sentenced to 90 days in jail for an incident earlier this year where he forcibly removed his car from an auto body shop without paying his outstanding bill. Crawford is expected to actually serve 53 days under the sentencing guidelines.

Yesterday, Douglas County Judge Marcena Hendrix scolded Crawford by telling him:

"You've continued to act as if you are above the law, and you are not."

Meanwhile, assistant prosecutor Makayla Maclin mentioned that Crawford was "not truthful" during the presentence investigation as Matthew Kahler, the attorney representing Crawford, said that he hoped to have Crawford out of jail on appeal by days end.

All in all, this isn’t good for Crawford who has become a main staple of HBO’s boxing brand. Hopefully once he gets this behind him he can stay on the straight and narrow and make the most of his incredible talent.
