Michigan MP Jewel Jones, D-Inkster, plans to enter into a plea deal with the prosecutor on Wednesday morning, his attorney confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

In November 2021, Jones is expected to accept a statement of recognition previously proposed by the Livingston County Attorney’s Office, his lawyer Byron Nolen said.

“We weighed the risk of going to court,” Nolen said. “Sometimes it’s better to move forward and leave it in the past.”

The plea agreement dismisses the five charges against Jones.

Under the plea agreement, Jones would plead guilty to two counts of resisting and obstructing a police officer, possession of a weapon while intoxicated, and working while intoxicated. He would also plead guilty to additional charges of negligent driving and escaping from custody.
