UFC Champion Jon Jones’ DWI Sentencing Rescheduled for July 3 in New York
was expected to be sentenced Tuesday for one misdemeanor
count of driving while intoxicated in Binghamton, N.Y., but the
proceeding has instead been rescheduled for July 3.
Sherdog.com confirmed the change with Binghamton City Court
officials this afternoon following an initial report from PressConnects.com.
The UFC light heavyweight champion pleaded guilty to the
misdemeanor count on May 29, striking a deal with the Broome County
District Attorney’s office during his arraignment. Jones was
arrested on suspicion of DWI in the early morning hours of May 19
after driving his Bentley into a utility pole.
As part of his plea, Jones had his driving license suspended and
was ordered to undergo an alcohol abuse and dependency evaluation
prior to his sentencing date. An additional traffic violation for
making an improper turn was also dismissed.
Jones, 24, will next defend his light heavyweight championship
against former Strikeforce and Pride Fighting Championships titlist
Henderson on Sept. 1 at UFC
