Despite New Details, Stallworth Likely Headed to Prison
Current Browns and former Patriots and Eagles receiver Donte Stallworth has messed up big-time. Although many NFL players probably have driven drunk or over the legal BAC limit before, Stallworth committed what looks to be vehicular homicide after hitting and killing a pedestrian last month in Miami.
Details continue to trickle out, including that the pedestrian, 59-year-old Mario Reyes, was not in a crosswalk when he was it, and that Stallworth flashed his lights to warn Reyes moments before hitting him. Still, after discovering that Stallworth was both speeding and driving drunk at the time, he is still in line for vehicular homicide charges since drunk driving would qualify as the reckless use of a vehicle.
According to the Florida State Statutes regarding vehicular homicide, Stallworth committed a second-degree felony and could face a maximum of 15 years in prison. Considering the other factors in this case, it’s likely he won’t receive the maximum sentence. But minimal prison time and a $10,000 fine looks to be the minimum punishment.
Let’s enjoy some Stallworth highlights while we still can, as his football career looks to be over.
