Murray State basketball player Zay Jackson has pleaded guilty to one count of wanton endangerment and one count of assault stemming from an incident in a Wal-Mart parking lot in September.

Jackson was sentenced to five years on both counts, to be served concurrently. But under the terms of a plea deal, Jackson will serve just 60 days. Jackson has already received credit for 11 days served, and will begin serving the remaining 49 days today.

Jackson will also be placed under a “strict” three-years probation. Under the terms of the deal, Jackson must also pay victim Jason Clement’s medical bills and attend counseling.

As far as Jackson’s basketball future, it appears that Jackson will be able to rejoin the team once he has served his jail term. Jackson has been on the bench in multiple games this season, and has been practicing with the team.
