Champion UFC fighter talks to Albuquerque inmates

Former UFC champion Jon “Bones” Jones spoke to Bernalillo County inmates on Tuesday. The jail visit was part of a plea deal Jones agreed to in connection with a hit-and-run crash last year. Jones told the inmates how he turned his life around and said it’s not too late for them to do the same.

The jail visit was part of a plea deal Jones agreed to in connection with a hit-and-run crash last year. The victim, Vanessa Sonnenberg, who was pregnant, broke her arm in the collision.

Jones told the inmates how he turned his life around and said it’s not too late for them to do the same.

“About my life and about, you know about decision-making, talk to them about ways I messed up in the past and how I continue to fight through different issues in my life,” Jones said.

Jones received probation and was ordered to serve community service in lieu of jail time.

The judge ordered Jones to make 72 appearances doing work with charity and speaking with children. Once the probation period is over, Jones will be re-sentenced per the terms of a conditional discharge.
