Attorney Cheryl Ramsey entered the plea for Blackmon, who did not attend Tuesday's hearing.
    
Police arrested Blackmon during a traffic stop in Stillwater on June 3 after a breath test allegedly showed his blood-alcohol content to be three times the legal limit.
    
Special Judge Michael Stano accepted Blackmon's plea and imposed a deferred sentence of one year - meaning Blackmon will serve no jail time if he fulfills the terms of his sentence. Blackmon was also fined $500 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.
    
The Jaguars selected Blackmon fifth overall in April's draft.
    
Blackmon has apologized and says he'll abstain from alcohol use for now.
