Murray State guard Zay Jackson reaches plea, will serve 49 more days

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Murray State guard Zay Jackson has reached a plea deal and was sentenced to 60 days in jail Monday after pleading guilty to one count of wanton endangerment and one count of assault.

Jackson, 20, hit Jason Clement with his car following a verbal altercation in a Murray, Ky., Walmart parking lot on Sept. 10. The incident was captured on video and Jackson was subsequently suspended for the season by the school. Jackson, who is from Hammond, La., served 11 days, and will begin the remainder of his sentence Monday. He will also pay Clement's medical bills and attend counseling.

The 6-foot Jackson averaged 4.9 points in 18.9 minutes last season and was expected to start for the Racers this season. Look for Jackson to be given a second chance by the program and rejoin the team next season after he serves his punishment.
