LiAngelo Ball’s Likely Punishment For Louis Vuitton Shades Theft Includes Lifetime Ban From China

Melo Ball's 16th Birthday

After the reports of possibly getting prison time for their crime, Liangelo Ball and his UCLA teammates are likely to escape severe punishment behind bars, but they won’t get off scott free.

The trio were originally looking at up to 10 years in a Chinese prison for stealing some Louis Vuitton Shades in a country where they scored a 99.9 conviction rate just last year, but according to Bleacher Report, the punishment will likely just be a couple of weeks at the hotel as well as never returning to China again.

“UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley reportedly could be forced to serve 20 days of house arrest and receive permanent banishment from China after being arrested for stealing Tuesday in Hangzhou.

On Thursday, Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the players, who were released on bail Wednesday, might serve the punishment at the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou, the hotel where UCLA and Georgia Tech players stayed ahead of their game Saturday (Friday night U.S. time) in Shanghai.”

Also, the legal process in China is a long one and the trio may be forced to be in China for months until a decision is made. Chinese authorities have up to 37 days to decide whether to pursue official approval for an arrest.
