Justin Blackmon DUI: Jaguars WR Pleads Guilty, Avoids Jail Time

Justin Blackmon plead guilty on Tuesday to the charges of aggravated DUI back in Stillwater, Okla., according to an article by Josh Katzowitz on CBS Sports. He was given a one year deferred sentence, meaning that he will not go to jail unless he fails to complete his other terms, 50 hours of community service and a fine of $500.

Blackmon has still yet to sign a contract with the Jaguars. One of the reasons why it has probably taken the two of them so long to get them done is the fact that the Jaguars may not be willing to pay as much in guaranteed money because of his arrests.

Because he had this problem with drinking while at Oklahoma State, he will likely enter the NFL's substance abuse program to make sure that he will not fall off the wagon again.
