Judge Accepts Pacman's Plea

LAS VEGAS -- A judge has accepted terms of a plea deal calling for NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones to plead guilty to a minor charge and testify about a Las Vegas strip club triple shooting.

Jones didn't have to appear while the judge accepted a written agreement calling for the troubled Tennessee Titans cornerback to plead no contest to one charge of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, a gross misdemeanor.

The judge scheduled Jones to appear to enter his plea Dec. 5.

A Clark County prosecutor says authorities hope Jones can identify the gunman who opened fire Feb. 19 outside a strip club where Jones had been involved in an earlier brawl.

Jones will be sentenced to one year of probation.

Prosecutors are dropping two felony charges of coercion that could have gotten him six years each in state prison.
