Justin Blackmon Pleads Guilty to DUI
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver and first round draft pick Justin Blackmon pled guilty today to driving under the influence, an incident that occurred on June 3.
Blackmon was fined $500 and sentenced to 50 hours of community service. If he does not fulfill the terms of the sentence, he could spend a year in prison. After being selected fifth in this year’s draft, one would assume that the fine won’t be an issue.
Of course, Blackmon needs to sign with the Jaguars before he can reap the financial benefits of his lofty draft position. He is one of the few first round draft picks who still hasn’t signed, with training camps set to open up across the NFL.
