SAN DIEGO (AP) - Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has pleaded guilty to a DUI charge and was sentenced to four days in jail and five years of probation.
Because it was his second DUI conviction, Jackson also likely will be subject to the NFL's personal conduct policy and could face at least a one-game suspension next season. Jackson pleaded guilty in a 2006 DUI case and was on probation when he was arrested again in January 2009, just days before a playoff game.
A spokeswoman for the City Attorney's Office says Jackson was given the standard sentence for a DUI with one prior, including a $2,408 fine and 10 days of public work service. He also was given an additional five days of public work service on the 2006 DUI.
