Judge Rips Ray Allen, Fines Ex-Celtics Star For Skipping Jury Duty

Ray Allen returned to Kevin Garnett’s good graces but ran afoul of the law in short order. U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke ripped the NBA legend and former Boston Celtics star Wednesday for failing to show up for jury duty. Allen was among the 12 jurors and two alternates selected for the federal trial of Jorge Aponte Figueroa, who accused of fatally shooting a driver in a carjacking incident. Cooke even delayed the start of the trial by one day so that Allen could participate in Garnett’s March 13 jersey-number retirement ceremony.
