Anna Benson pleads guilty to aggravated assault, possession of a firearm in her attack on Kris Benson

Remember back in July when Anna Benson, the estranged-and-soon-to-be-ex-wife of former MLB pitcher Kris Benson burst into his house with a gun, a knife, a metal baton and a bullet-proof vest, smashed a computer and demanded $30,000? If you don’t, well, where are your priorities?

Anyway, she pleaded guilty to that today. Or at least two charges that arose out of that: aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. In exchange for the plea, she’s not going to do any more jail time than the four months she’s been under lock and key since the crime. She’s getting 15 years probation.

It’s hard to deny that part of that is because Anna Benson is simply not well. The court acknowledged that in its sentence, the court has ordered into a psychiatric and substance abuse program, where she will be confined on an inpatient basis for as many as 90 days. She will not be permitted to contact her family during that time.

She’s lucky she’s getting help. She’s also lucky she didn’t get a ton of jail time.

    I hope she is not getting any alimony.

      I think Kris needs help. He’s got to live with the fact that she is “out there” and not confined. She’s probably going to pull this again, next time she might kill him. He’s got to live with that. She’s getting off way too easy.

        Careful Kris, remember Steve McNair!!!!

    Marrying a stripper with 4 kids is usually a sound decision.

    Not sure how things went wrong.

      You’re obviously not a romantic.

        His wife never made him watch Pretty Woman.

    Got off way too easy for BS like that. Lol. If this were a male doing this to a female… Well.. You know where I’m going with this…

    • wkl21 - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:09 PM

      if this were a male doing this to a female the pic would’ve had Gloria Allred in it.

      • skids003 - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:14 PM

        Beat me to it!! You hit the nail on the head.

    Hopefully, she will never possess a firearm again with her mental health history.

    • skids003 - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:13 PM

      I bet that one wasn’t legal.

      • indaburg - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:16 PM

        Legally or illegally, for all of our sakes, I hope she never possesses a firearm. She’s crazy.

      • skids003 - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:20 PM

        Unfortunately, a nut will find a way, if not by gun, by knife or whatever. He’s got to live knowing she’s out “there.”

    • kylewo - Nov 6, 2013 at 2:13 PM

      Can convicted felons legally possess a firearm? I’m assuming this crime was indeed a felony.

    • henryd3rd - Nov 6, 2013 at 4:47 PM

      Getting her hands on illegal firearms is as easy as asking one of her friends to purchase it for her. That sicko should have been locked up in a mental institution for for a couple of years at the very least not 90 days.

      Having said that Kris should have had his head examined for marrying such a crazy woman. No way there were not signs that that woman had issues before they tied the knot.

    I knew something was seriously wrong with her ever since the day she showed half naked at the Mets’ Christmas Party as Santa Claus….

  6. rickdobrydney - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:03 PM

    Showed UP

    The crazy ones make great one night stands, bad girlfriends, terrible wives, and even worse ex-wives.

    • teambringitstrong - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:33 PM

      Charles Frances Harper said it best; sex with crazy chicks is great!!

  8. robreg22 - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:15 PM

    I always thought this chick was crazy

  9. slystone111 - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:51 PM

    I’d still f her

    • sincitybonobo - Nov 6, 2013 at 2:36 PM

      Not if you saw a recent pic you wouldn’t.

      Not with yours.

      • sincitybonobo - Nov 6, 2013 at 2:44 PM

        Her reality show was too white trash for VH1.

  10. chiadam - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:55 PM

    Nice cannons. Too bad she lost her fastball.

  11. skipcastaneda - Nov 6, 2013 at 12:57 PM

    In that picture, she looks like Kenny Powers wife on East Bound and Down.

  12. jss1330 - Nov 6, 2013 at 2:12 PM

    Shouldn’t she qualify as somebody that can’t own guns? Or do we just talk about the “Crazies” after a horrific event?

    • skids003 - Nov 6, 2013 at 2:50 PM

      She probably can’t legally own one, but reality and “life” says that a nut will find a way. They don’t follow laws, that’s proven. That’s why gun control don’t work, bad people don’t follow the rules.

  13. farvite - Nov 6, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    Crazy is fun for awhile.

    Till she bursts into your house with a gun and knife demanding large sums of $$$

  14. mogogo1 - Nov 6, 2013 at 3:02 PM

    The gal in this picture has no resemblance to the picture of Benson at her last court appearance. She looks about 50 now. And not a good 50, either.

    Yet another reason to be thankful this holiday season: that I have always been too homely to attract the hot chicks.
