Joba Chamberlain's mother pleads 'no contest' to drug charges

Nov 3, 2009, 11:45 AM EDT

Joba Chamberlain’s mother pleaded no contest Monday to delivery of a controlled substance in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Jackie Standley was arrested in May for allegedly selling a gram of methamphetamine to an undercover police officer at her apartment and the felony charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for next month.
Standley is currently in a dual-diagnosis drug and alcohol treatment facility, which according to the Lincoln Journal Star suggests that the 44-year-old is “suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues.”
Three months ago Standley was also accused of leaving threatening phone messages for a former female friend, reportedly warning the woman: “You’d better disappear. Keep your eyes open.” Standley was cited then for disturbing the peace.

    This comment, Aaron, is why I don’t understand how this news story got mixed in with stories about baseball.
    I am curious as to how you deliberated in whether or not you should do this post here. Two words, Joba and Camberlain are the only connection to baseball.
    After the Phillip’s stories wouldn’t you assume that the comments would focus on the looks of his Mother.
    I know, maybe you where trying to present the “other side” to the feel good stories about Joba’s father a few years ago. Because this is a political forum and you need balance.
    Wait, no, it’s a baseball blogsite, I almost forgot.

    It was just my opinion on this particular post.
    Also, couldn’t you come up with an new joke instead of rejurgitated the first joke. Is it because you didn’t get the joke the first time and needed to run it through your head a few more times?
