Okay, so maybe not completely free

Sherdog has more info on Quinton Jackson’s potential punishment:

The former light heavyweight champion will be sentenced on Jan. 7, 2010, according to a press release from the Orange County’s District Attorney’s Office.

“Based on the negotiated plea agreement, the defendant could receive up to six months in jail and probation at his sentencing,” read the release. “Prior to sentencing, Jackson is required to complete 200 hours of community service, attend mental health therapy, pay restitution, and comply with other terms and conditions.”

So Rampage has a year of staying squeaky clean and even then might get half a year in the slammer. If he slips up, it’s bad news … add the fact that anything he does is under the microscope of the MMA media (well, everything but those love taps after the Wand fight), and there’s still a small chance things could get raw.

**Update** I’m not saying anything is likely to happen … I’d actually be shocked it if did. Consider this a little bit of bark barking from the DA to make it look like they didn’t roll over completely. But still, it’s in there. So there you go.
