He waived his right to appeal the case and, as a result, the state changed the indictment from a charge of reckless manslaughter to a charge of aggravated assault by recklessly causing bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon

The former NBA star is set to be taken to the Central Reception and Assignment Facility which is located in Trenton, New Jersey where he will be photographed, have DNA samples taken, and be given medical, dental, psychological and educational evaluations, according to Corrections Department spokeswoman Dierdre Fedkenheuer.

Once these preliminaries are taken care of, it will be decided exactly where Williams will be sent.
