SEATTLE (AP) — Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins changed his original plea and has pleaded guilty to a charge of driving under the influence stemming from his arrest after crashing his car in March.

Seferian-Jenkins made the guilty plea in Seattle Municipal Court on Monday morning before Judge Fred Bonner. Seferian-Jenkins was sentenced to 364 days in jail with 363 suspended. His one day in jail is expected to be served in the next couple of weeks before Washington begins fall camp on Aug. 5.

Seferian-Jenkins apologized during a statement to the court. His attorney, William Kirk, said from the start Seferian-Jenkins has wanted to take responsibility for his actions.

Seferian-Jenkins was arrested on March 9 following a late-night car accident. His blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent, more than twice the state limit.
