Ex-Raiders star Chandler Jones avoids jail time in domestic violence case: reports

Former Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones has seemingly avoided jail time after he was arrested on two occasions last fall in connection with charges related to domestic violence, according to multiple reports. 

Jones, who was released by the Raiders in September after he was arrested in Las Vegas for violating a domestic violence temporary protective order, pleaded no contest last week to a domestic violence charge, ESPN reported, citing court documents. 

He was given a suspended 90-day sentence, meaning he will not serve any jail time if he follows certain conditions, including having no contact with his victim, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. 

The 34-year-old NFL player was arrested on Sept. 28 on two charges of violating a domestic violence protective order. Less than a month later, he was arrested again for violating the protective order. 

According to ESPN, one of the misdemeanor charges he was facing was later dismissed. If he follows the conditions for six months as a part of his sentence on June 17, the second charge will also be dismissed.

Prior to his arrest, Jones’ social media activity raised concerns about his mental health. In one since-deleted post on social media, he said he was taken to a hospital “against my will.”

Jones last played in an NFL game in 2022.
