Former NFL tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins cut a deal in his latest DUI case. According to TMZ Sports, the charges will be dropped once he completes probation, which includes a two-year treatment program.
Seferian-Jenkins was pulled over back in March in Washington for speeding and driving erratically. Officers noticed an odor of alcohol and marijuana. He was arrested after refusing to take a field sobriety test.
From TMZ Sports:
The court official tells us Seferian-Jenkins took a deferred prosecution deal from prosecutors ... essentially, Seferian-Jenkins agreed to keep his nose clean for five years, complete a 2-year outpatient treatment program, attend a victim impact panel and pay fees.
In exchange, the court official says prosecutors agreed to drop the charges in 5 years if ASJ completes all of the above.
Seferian-Jenkins is due back in court in Dec. 2022 to make sure he's completed the 2-year outpatient program.
Seferian-Jenkins is lucky he was arrested in Washington. There aren't many places that are going to strike this kind of deal with a third time offender.
