 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Stephen Jackson will admit to criminal recklessness in firing a gun outside a strip club and, if the plea agreement is accepted by a judge, pay a $5,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said Monday.
In return, the Golden State Warriors player will have a one-year jail sentence suspended and a felony converted into a misdemeanor conviction, spokesman Matthew Symons said.
Jackson was traded from the Indiana Pacers to the Golden State Warriors in January, two months after the Indianapolis nightclub shooting. He is scheduled to plead guilty in Marion Superior Court on Wednesday. Last month, Judge Patricia J. Gifford granted a defense motion to delay the start of Jackson's trial to June 21.
``The judge will either accept it or not accept it. I would be inclined to believe she would accept it, but that would be speaking for her, so I can't do that definitively,'' Symons said of the plea agreement.
A telephone message seeking comment was left with Jackson's attorney, James Voyles, at his Indianapolis office.
Jackson, who was arrested with two other men outside the club last October, told police he fired shots in the air to try to break up a fight.
The original criminal recklessness charge carried a prison term of six months to three years.
In February, Deon Willford, who hit Jackson with a car, was convicted of felony battery in a bench trial and sentenced to two years in prison, two years on probation and 100 hours community service. The third man, Raymel Mattocks, pleaded guilty last month to possession of marijuana, was fined $1,000 and given a 60-day suspended sentence.
At the time of the fight, Jackson already was on probation for his role in a 2004 brawl between Pacers players and Detroit Pistons fans. Jackson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault and battery charges in September 2005 for his role in the incident.
