Former Chicago Bulls guard Jalen Rose has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for a drunk driving accident in March.

Rose was sentenced to 93 days in jail by Judge Kimberly Small, who suspended all but 20 of the days, according to The Detroit-Free Press.

Small, who is known for her tough sentencing on drunk driving, scolded Rose during the 40-minute sentencing, telling him that she had no problem with him drinking, but rather with him getting behind the wheel of a two-ton vehicle.

Rose pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle while under the influence, after registering a 0.12 percent blood alcohol level in a hospital blood test.

In addition to the 20 days in jail, Rose has been sentenced to a year of probation, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Rose played in the NBA for 13 seasons and is now an analyst for ESPN.
