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.”

Maybe if he was a regular guy facing these charges.

He will get probation and some hefty fines. His biggest problem is gonna be the lawsuit this pregnant lady is going to have on him.

If he does get locked up for significant time - 3 years, this will likely go down as something similar to Tyson's fall from the throne. Unbeatable in the ring and was beaten by his own personal issues/actions. Even a 1 year sentence could have significant ramifications on Jones fighting. He may not be able to come back mentally and that is a huge part of fighting.

It really sucks but he had the chance to change himself when he failed that drug test but didn't take it seriously. I wish him the best but hopefully he can grow from this.

if he ACTUALLY goes to prison, no million dollar training center, no constant support system... It could do hings to a person. Ali lost his legs, tyson lost a step or two, Jones will likely lose a step, assuming he goes to real people prison and not that glorified house arrest bullshit.

Even the lawsuit won't net her that much. She broke her arm, it's not like she suffered life threatening injuries or lost her baby.

She wont get awarded more money just because the guy who hit her is rich.

I bet she ends up settling with Jones out of court for her medical costs and maybe a few grand extra.

A broken arm, also she will sue for pain and suffering as well I am sure.

She hasn't delivered a healthy baby yet, so nothing is certain yet. Who is to say two weeks from now she doesn't have a miscarriage? Lets hope not though. I also think settling out of court is probally the most logical thing.

The reason JJ wiped out the whole LHW class in a year was bc he needed money for the illegitimate children he had on the way. God help us if he loses all his money. He is going to go up to HW and ruin everyone.

Based on a quick google search the average amount awarded for pain and suffering in New Mexico is between 3 and 7 times the medical bills.

The average cost of a broken arm is around $2,500 and $3,500.

So she's probably looking at roughly $25,000 give or take. Although that could go significantly higher depending on the severity of the break or if she were to have complications with her pregnancy relating to the incident as you said.

It's also possible that her injuries are more significant than initially reported, and its also possible she can sue for the damage to her vehicle. (the other man with his family might do the same)

Regardless of how much she gets though, I wouldn't want to be in Bones shoes right now.

The rich and famous never receive the same sentences as us common folk. If I did that I'd lose my career, definitely serve some real time in prison (minimum security), come out broke and probably divorced. Not a lot of career options for someone leaving prison either. This dude will have the options/support/money to ensure that he gets taken care of. What he needs is to be humbled.

I'd like nothing more than for JJ to do whatever time he has coming, stop this reckless behavior, and stop being such a jackass.

After that, hopefully he returns to fighting.
