The sentencing issued to “Bones” included a $1,000 fine, six-month license suspension, completion of a victim-impact course and the installation of ignition interlocks installed on his vehicles.
“Blessed to still have the full support of Broom County/all my fans and my DWI case officially behind me,” Jones tweeted after his sentencing.
“Moving forward.” he wrote.
The sentencing was handed out to Jones by City Court Judge Daniel L. Seiden, according to pressconnects.com.
