Zay Jackson enters plea in Walmart parking lot case
Murray State basketball player Zay Jackson has pleaded guilty to one count of wanton endangerment and one count of assault stemming from an incident in a Wal-Mart parking lot in September.
Jackson was sentenced to five years on both counts, to be served concurrently. But under the terms of a plea deal, Jackson will serve 60 days. Jackson has already received credit for 11 days served, and will begin serving the remaining 49 days today.
Under the terms of the deal, Jackson must also pay victim Jason Clement's medical bills and attend counseling.
Police say Jackson hit Clement with his car following an argument on Sept. 10 during an incident in the Walmart parking lot in Murray, Kentucky.
Zay Jackson is headed to jail, where he'll serve a 60 day sentence after pleading guilty to assault and wanton endangerment
