ARDMORE, Okla. – A former Oklahoma State football star will serve a one-year deferred sentence after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.

In April, former NFL wide receiver Justin Blackmon pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DUI following his arrest in December in Ardmore.

On Wednesday, a judge determined that Blackmon will not serve any jail time as long as he complies with the conditions of his probation and suspended sentence.

According to the Carter County Court Clerk’s office, he received a one-year deferred sentence, 100 hours of community service and a $1,000 fine.

It was his second arrest since he was indefinitely suspended by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Blackmon was suspended in 2013 for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

In 2014, Blackmon was arrested in Edmond after he admitted to smoking marijuana and getting behind the wheel. He also admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle.

He later pleaded no contest to that charge.
