Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “'I have some personal work to do': Jon Jones issues statement after avoiding jail time with DWI and firearms plea deal”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
The UFC light heavyweight champion attended a hearing and issued a guilty plea to DWI and firearms charges, and made a deal with prosecutors that saw him handed one year of supervised probation, 96 hours of community custody, 48 hours of community service and at least 90 days of therapy, which will start off being held over video call due to the current coronavirus shutdown.
The Bernalillo District Attorney's office issued a statement following the verdict, stating that further indiscretions from Jones during the terms of his deal will see him thrown in jail.
"Jon Jones pleaded guilty to his second DWI. The incident happened on March 26, 2020 outside a downtown Albuquerque nightclub, just two months after his probation ended following an incident at an Albuquerque strip club," he said.
"Jones took responsibility for his actions early on in the case and in doing so the state agreed to 1 year supervised probation.
"Normally, the State would be requesting a pre-sentencing report and a recommendation to Substance Recovery Court. However, due to COVID-19, it is not clear the program can accept anyone at this time.
