Former Raider linebacker sentenced to 15 days in jail

maiavaKaluka Maiava is a former Oakland Raiders linebacker, who started two games last season for the team.  Today he is in jail serving a sentence in Hawaii for an assault that occurred back in 2013.

Kaluka Maiava turned himself in Monday afternoon to the Maui Community Correctional Center in Hawaii to begin serving a 15-day jail term, according to the Associated Press. Maiava pleaded no contest to assault charges stemming from a 2013 incident at a Maui bar, according to the report.

Maiava will have a difficult time landing on a team after the conviction.  Maiava is currently a free agent and eligible to sign with any team, but it may be hard to land him a deal with the way the NFL is looking down on any crime.
