M. Jones Avoids Drug Trial
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones has agreed to enter an intervention program to avoid trial on a felony drug charge.
According to the Florida Times Union, Jones must participate in 136 hours of group therapy and 30 hours of community service, and submit to at least 78 random drug tests during the nine-month program.
If he completes the program, a felony charge of cocaine possession will be dismissed. Jones was arrested in July in Arkansas and faced three to 10 years in jail and a $10,000 fine if convicted. His trial was to begin Friday.
