Camacho at Sentencing

Hector “Macho” Camacho, a former super featherweight, lightweight and light welterweight boxing champion, is now a convicted felon. He plead guilty to a 2004 burglary in which he climbed through the ceiling of a computer store and left with seven laptops and about $5,600 in checks and cash. The judge sentenced him to the maximum 7 years in prison, but suspended 6 years of the sentence.

Camacho claimed he was “trying to retrieve his computer and was ‘crazy’ on tequila” when he broke into the computer store. Based on his sentencing guidelines, the judge may have actually believed his story. Camacho may be able to serve the remaining 1 year of his sentence under house arrest in Puerto Rico if authorities in there agree to monitor him.

That’s not the end of his problems. He was found with a stash of Ecstasy when he was arrested for the burglary charge and must return to court to deal with those charges later this month. Can you believe this guy was the world champ before Oscar De La Hoya!?
