By Jamie McAllister
Greg Jackson comments while on HDNet’s InsideMMA.

Jackson comments on Jon Jones arrest under suspicion of DWI which he later pleaded guilty for accepting a plea bargain.

“He’s trying to do the right thing here,”

“As long as you make a mistake and learn from it, I hope people give him a lot of latitude because we all make mistakes,”

“And as long as he takes those positive steps and trying to do the right thing, I think we should all respect that and try and support him.”

Jones will be back in court for sentencing on June 19, and must complete an alcohol abuse and dependency assessment prior to sentencing. His drivers licence in New York was also immediately suspended.
