0731_bones_jones_gettyUFC champ Jon "Bones" Jones will not be allowed to drive for the next 6 months ... after a judge REVOKED his license as part of his sentence for drunk driving back in May.

Bones appeared in Binghamton City Court in Upstate New York this morning ... where he was sentenced for the May 19 incident in which he crashed his Bentley into a utility pole around 5:00 AM.

The 25-year-old fighter struck a plea deal with prosecutors ... in which he agreed to plead guilty to DWI and in exchange, he must pay a $1,000 fine, complete a victim impact panel within 90 days, and surrender his driver's license for 6 months.

There's more ... Jones must pay $6,500 in restitution to New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) to fix the utility pole ... AND he's required to have an ignition interlock device installed on his cars.

At the end of the hearing, the judge admonished Jones to make better decisions in the future.

It doesn't sound like he struck a plea deal, it sounds like he got the standard DUI punishment for a 1st time offender in NY. License suspended for 6 months, must complete a DUI class, and most likely it's $1,000 surcharge for 3 years. I believe that's what it is in NY.

Jon is a lucky guy.
1st in that he didn't kill anybody,or himself
Also gets off with a slap on the wrist.
Here in Ontario,Canada,a 1st offense DWI is a minimum of one year suspension, $12-1500 fine.
and you have to pay once your license is reinstated for a breath analysis system to be installed on your car ($1400) and to have it calibrated each month @ $175 for another 2 years after..crazy!!

Pleading guilty to DWI = likely had a very high BAC (anything over .18 in NY is Aggravated DWI which = higher fines and a more likely jail sentence)
