Murray State's Jackson enters guilty plea

Posted: Saturday, October 13, 2012 8:00 am

Murray State University basketball player Zay Jackson began serving a 30-day jail sentence Friday after pleading guilty in Calloway Circuit Court to charges of wanton endangerment related to a September incident at the Murray Walmart.

The jail sentence is part of a plea agreement Jackson made with the Calloway County Commonwealth Attorney’s office before he appeared in front of Foust for the first time. The agreement, a pretrial diversion, calls for Jackson to serve 30 days in jail, complete an anger management course and perform 30 days of community service. It also orders Jackson to submit a written apology to the two people he is accused of striking with his car on Sept. 9 following an altercation in the parking lot of the Murray Walmart. In addition, Jackson will surrender his driving privileges for 30 days — with exceptions for driving to classes, anger management sessions, jail and community service events — and pay restitution to be determined later.
