ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) – Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon has been given a one year suspended sentence and probation for driving under the influence in Oklahoma.

Blackmon was sentenced Wednesday in Carter County District Court in his hometown of Ardmore.

The Oklahoman reports that Blackmon declined comment.

Authorities arrested the former Oklahoma State University standout in December after an officer said he smelled alcohol in Blackmon’s vehicle.

Blackmon pleaded guilty to the charge in April and his original sentencing scheduled in June was delayed while he completed court-ordered alcohol abuse courses.

His probation includes random drug testing, $1,000 in fines and 100 hours community service work and state supervision requiring monthly check-ins with the district attorney’s office.
