Jon Jones DWI Sentencing Delayed Again As Jones Asks For More Time To Complete Alcohol & Drug Abuse Programs | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones was back in front of the judge today in New York’s Binghamton City Court, the same place that saw the 24-year-old confess to driving while intoxicated (DWI) back in June.

Jones was granted another postponement in his sentencing after he requested more time to complete his drug and alcohol abuse program according to the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin, and will now have until July 31 to get his affairs in order.

According to the report Jones will likely face a “one-year conditional discharge as well as a fine of up to $1,500 and will be required to install ignition interlock devices in his vehicles, pay restitution for damage, undergo a substance dependency evaluation and attend a victim impact class.”

Jones was arrested May 26th in the early hours of the morning after crashing his Bentley into a pole and got hit with a pair of moving violations including “improper turn” and “deviating from a direct course.”

The 205-pound champion is required to complete an alcohol abuse and dependency assessment before sentencing, which he has yet to complete, but is still expected to defend his 205-pound strap against Dan Henderson at the UFC 151 pay-per-view (PPV) event from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sept. 1.

This will only leave around one month between his fight and the sentencing.

  1. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    Jones will say he loves Jesus then head back down to stripper bar instead of going to his alcohol classes. Rashad said Jones spends more time with the whores than with his girlfriend and kids. One thing I give Rashad credit for he had JOnes pegged as being the biggest “FAKE” ever

    @GETRIDOFITCH, get a life man. talkin like u know jones personally and shit. only fake fighter ive seen is phael sonnen..

  3. Maurice you silly little twat says:

    Maurice, when someone gets caught, DWI, accident, etc… all the while preaching Jesus and literally a week or so before the accident said he would be one of the “good guys” and never drive while drinking. I’m pretty confident, as you should be too, that you can logically deduct what type of person he really is, as opposed to the facade he puts on for the media. And as for your comment about Chael, right after you say this “talkin like u know jones personally and shit.”, is extremely silly. You’re not too smart are you? Take notes. Maybe one day you can get on my level.

    • BYANywear says:

      Agreed I don’t know the specifics of what Jones does but i figured what Rashad was leaning towards and if you’re living a double life it’s bound to show where you really are especially when you’re running around toting this i’m a Christian banner.

    NIggers dont learn, its in his genes to be adirty nigger and not learn dumbass niger

  5. WrestlingRules says:

    Jones is a young super successful MMA fighter, Will probably be the best ever and he’s rich now. The guy made a mistake and will learn from it. He who has not sinned throw the first stone…fuckin hypocrites.

    • Mayor of Deviance says:

      I doubt he’ll learn from it, he’ll just get better about not getting caught. And it’s not like driving drunk is the sole reason people think he’s an asshole. It’s the fact that he preaches godliness and mysticism when he has a wife and kids he ditches to drive around drunk with whores. That’s not a single mistake, that’s a pattern of behavior. The guy’s an asshole.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        No he is not a role model, but either is Silva…Most these guys are not role models. Fighting is NOT a high endeavor. You are right, he is a bit of a slimeball, but he is trying to get better or he’s a sociopath. Time will tell…

  6. maurice says:

    OMG JONES IS THE ANTI CHRIST. HE ISNT A REAL CHRISTIAN. HE ISNT REALLY A DEVOTED FATHER EITHER. HE’S GLAD HE GOT A DWI AND ISNT PLANNING ON CHANGING FOR THE BETTER. IN FACT HE PLANS ON VACATING HIS TITLE SO HE CAN GO AND BE INVOLVED IN ALL THE WRONG DOINGS IN THE WORLD. HE’S THE DEVIL REINCARNATED. THE DEVIL GOT A DWI, LETS PUT HIM ON THE CROSS AND BURN HIM. u jones haters sound pathetic. like the dude got a dwi, and i know he feels ashamed and like a dumbass for it. u ppl make it seem like this guy is only up to no good and that he is proud of his actions. but u same ppl will praise a cheat and REAL criminal in sonnen, who obviously isnt trying to change for the better. wether u guys pull ur heads out of ur ass or not, jones will continue to fly, while u haters sit behind ur computers and hate him for beating the shit outta shogun, shad and machida.

  7. Paul says:

    He drove while drunk for fuck sake , and won’t even be banned from driving , it’s a fucking disgrace he could have killed somebody !

  8. Rick James says:

    “They should have never gave you niggas money!”

  9. maurice says:

    “WHAT AM I GOIN TO DO ABOUT MY LEGGGSS CHARLIE MURPHYY??!” damn i miss the chappelle show.
