FOX Legal Rep. Says Jones Could Be in Jail For 3 Years
Well really, the next step is up to the prosecution. They have to decide whether to go in front of the grand jury and get the indictment. But given that it seems clear what this guy did and that there are so many witnesses to it, I think it’s inevitable there will be an indictment. What could be happening is his lawyers trying to get a plea bargain from the prosecutors.”
Jon Jones released on continued bond, not given any travel restrictions
Jon Jones made his first appearance in court Tuesday on a felony charge, and the door has been left open for him to fight next month -- at least legally.
The UFC light heavyweight champion was released from custody on continued bond by a judge in San Bernalillo (N.M.) County court, according to spokesperson Camille Cordova. Jones was arrested on a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death or serious injury Monday and posted $2,500 bond then. That bail carries over to his Tuesday release and he will not have to post more money.
