Wide receiver Vincent Jackson of the San Diego Chargers enter a plea of guilty to his pending DUI criminal charge. Judge David Danielsen issued the judgment and sentence in Jackson’s case and gave a similar sentence he provides all second time offenders.
Jackson will serve five days in jail, but is authorized to enter the work release program. Jackson must pay fines and fees totaling $2,408, complete 15 days of community service and serve five years of probation. Probation will monitor Jackson compliance with the terms above and any other typical condition (i.e. no new criminal law violations).
Jackson now must anxiously await punishment from the NFL. Good thing there are no NFL teams in Canada because Jackson’s DUI conviction will prevent him from visiting Canada.
