Jacksonville Jaguars’ first-round draft pick pleads not guilty to DUI

Posted on June 5th, 2012 No Comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ first-round draft pick, Justin Blackmon, has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor aggravated DUI charge after being arrested early Sunday morning with a blood alcohol content of 0.24.

The 22-year-old wide receiver was only charged with a misdemeanor because he does not have a prior DUI on his record. He was almost charged with a DUI in Texas in 2010, but it was reduced to a minor in possession (MIP) charge so that he only paid a fine.

His hearing is scheduled for July 24, three days before the Jaguars’ summer training camp begins.

If he is found not guilty, he can have the arrest expunged from his record. If you have old arrests on your record and would like them removed, contact the expungement lawyers at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at 214-845-7007.
