Jon Jones Free To Go; Must Attend Courses
Judge Michael E. Martinez presided over a hearing this morning involving UFC star Jon Jones and his recent stint in a county jail. The hearing took place at the New Mexico Second Judicial District Court.
The judge added several new stipulations to the probation sentence that Jones is already serving from the hit-and-run incident last year. The former UFC light heavyweight champion agreed to attend anger management and driver improvement courses as well as do 60 more hours of community service.
Martinez also ordered that Jones must get approval from his probation officer whenever he wants to drive.
According to MMAFighting: “The Bernalillo County District Attorney’s office wanted the judge to impose a nightly curfew on Jones from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., but Martinez declined that provision.”
Jones turned himself in Tuesday after he was received five traffic citations last Thursday night. He was being held at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center.
“Jones was cited three times in January for traffic violations, including driving without a license, registration and proof of insurance. He was cleared by a judge for those offenses, but had 24 hours of community service added by the New Mexico Corrections Department, because it took him eight days to inform his probation officer that he had contact with police.”
