COPY-Jackson to take plea bargain

Associated Press - June 20, 2007 9:23 AM ET

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - NBA player Stephen Jackson will be in an Indianapolis courtroom today, where he is expected to admit to criminal recklessness in firing a gun outside a strip club. But, if a plea agreement is accepted by a judge, the former Pacer will get a 1-year suspended sentence and have a felony converted into a misdemeanor conviction. That's according to an agreement with the Marion County prosecutor.

Jackson would pay a $5,000 fine and be required to perform 100 hours of community service.

Jackson, who was traded from Indiana to the Golden State Warriors in January, was arrested with two other men outside the club last October. He told police he fired shots in the air to try to break up a fight.
