Jason Lawrence Sentenced to Year in Jail

Thursday, September 10, 2009
Motocross rider Jason Lawrence is no stranger to controversy and it appears the troubled champion can now add a long stint in jail to his rap sheet. Lawrence has been sentenced to a year in a Riverside County jail for assault.

J Law celebrates a monster win at San Diego.
Jason Lawrence celebrates a 2008 Supercross victory. The MX star is serving time now for an assault conviction.
First reported on Racer X on Sept 9th, Lawrence’s incarceration stems from a fight with a friend where J Law reputedly bit part of the victim’s ear off. The Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta, California, lists a Jason Donald Lawrence on a booking report with a matching birth date.

In 2008, Lawrence reportedly spent the night in jail prior to the Red Bud Motocross round. It was an incident that earned him a hefty fine from the AMA and probationary status, which Lawrence eventually broke during this year’s Supercross season.

Now, it would seem, the former Yamaha star’s MX career is on permanent hold until he finds his way out of his cell…

J-Law fought the law and the law won.
SAMxrl -time's up!  September 11, 2009 05:51 AM
Jason is just another example of a "so called" athlete that thinks he is above the law. The AMA put him in his place and now the law has added to it. If he bulks up in jail maybe he can shoot for a career in baseball or football. They'll gladly give him up to 5+ chances and even reward him with a fatter contract for his behavior. Motocross is a family activity that deserves better role models than this idiot!
