Dallas Cowboys guard Ronald Leary pleaded no-contest Monday to a drunk-driving charge in a case dating back to 2012, according to the Dallas Morning News. He will be sentenced to 18 months probation and be forced to pay a $1,000 fine.  

Leary was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Sept. 7, 2012, a Class B misdemeanor, after he failed a sobriety test. Multiple court dates had been postponed until a July 14 trial date was finally set. 

The Morning News reports that Leary will not be suspended, but will be subject to a fine from the league. 

Leary started at left guard for all 16 of the Cowboys' games in 2013 and is expected to compete for this season's starting job during training camp. Dallas drafted guard Zack Martin out of Notre Dame in the first round of this year's draft.
