UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock Pens Open Letter to Jon Jones
Few others can understand the enticement of the lust of life when the world says “yes” to your every desire. At these times, anything you want is at your fingertips: free meals, expensive gifts, amazing opportunities, big sponsorships, money, girls, and just about every desire being met on demand.
One day, everything changes. Speaking from experience, the decisions we make eventually catches up to us. These consequences, from the seeds that we have sown, are very real and seldom easy to deal with. Fame is often a road paved with heartbreak. It’s a black hole that has the ability to engulf a distracted soul.
Unfortunately, you must sleep in the bed that you made. You did this to yourself, and you have issues that need to be dealt with. It’s important that you understand that all your troubles today are a bi-product of your actions. Once you truly understand this, then you can begin to heal what has been broken and move forward once again........"
FOX Legal Rep. Says Jones Could Be in Jail For 3 Years
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.”
Jon Jones released on continued bond, not given any travel restrictions
Jon Jones made his first appearance in court Tuesday on a felony charge, and the door has been left open for him to fight next month -- at least legally.
The UFC light heavyweight champion was released from custody on continued bond by a judge in San Bernalillo (N.M.) County court, according to spokesperson Camille Cordova. Jones was arrested on a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death or serious injury Monday and posted $2,500 bond then. That bail carries over to his Tuesday release and he will not have to post more money.
