According to Los Angeles Times that day, Dennis Rodman was sentenced to 104 hours of community service and three years of informal probation, and that he should continue to provide support to his child and his ex-wife Michelle Rodman.

As noted in the report, Rodman, 51, who won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award in 1991, is scheduled to be back in court this coming June 22, who is now broke as told to them this year by his financial adviser and lawyer.

Back in March, an Orange County court commissioner told Rodman that he may be jailed for 20 days or be sentenced for a community service for contempt of court if he will not pay on Tuesday his child and spousal support that amounted to $860,376.

Dennis and Michelle were married on May 13, 2003, his 42nd birthday, but Michelle filed for divorce in 2004 and their marriage was officially dissolved last month despite the couple spending several years trying to reconcile.

Rodman, who was nicknamed ‘Dennis the Menace’ and known for his colored hair, spent 14 years in NBA. He married Annie Bakes in 1992 but she divorced him a year later; and later married Carmen Electra in November 1998 but also ended in divorce which was finalized in October 2009.
