Veteran MMA fighter Jeff Monson pleaded guilty to graffiti-related charges stemming from a picture that was published last year in ESPN the Magazine (right) of Monson spraypainting an anarchy symbol onto the Washington state Capitol. Monson pleaded guilty to the Capitol charge, and entered an Alford plea on the charge for graffiti at an armed-forces recruiting center, meaning that he doesn’t admit guilt, but does believe that there is enough evidence that he will be convicted.
Monson, 38, is scheduled to be sentenced in October, with the prosecutor recommending 90 days in jail. He was also slapped with a $21,894 fine for restitution. However, the crushing blow for Monson is that he was forced to hand over his passport. He is reported to have fights scheduled in Russia and Japan in early 2010, and won’t be able to travel for them. When asked to turn the passport over, he asked the prosecutor, “Are you going to support my family now?”
My thoughts as I am reading this(which must be read in your most sarcastic voice possible)…
It must be such an emotional blow when a guy who’s been able to do whatever the fuck he wants whenever he fucking wants to is actually held accountable for something. But at least he was able to “man up” and accept responsib- oh no? He just said, “fine you’re just gonna convict me anyway” (an Alford Plea)and shrugged his shoulders? I see. But at least then he accepted the decision and made a plan to- no? Oh he was rude to the judge and not charged with contempt of court? Ohhhh.
You will all be surprised to note that Monson was recently charged with Domestic Violence, a charge that was later dropped despite the vicitm’s statements due to “charges had being misclassified as a domestic case under state law.”
