    Special Treatment my BUTT

    Donte Stallworth Settled today in court... 3o days in prison for a DUI Crash that Killed a man... ESPN and a bunch of lawyers are saying it's fair for all because he made a deal with the family for an undisclosed amount of money so everyone made out, not just Stallworth. In PA, your first DUI is 6 months in jail no questions asked, let alone killing someone. I just feel the man should still be kicked out of the league, since many say Mike Vick should be banned for killing dogs, a murderer
    should be also.... Just my opinion and will be ashamed if this man plays again.

    I thought he might avoid prison all together so I'm sort of glad about the ruling.

    He's not a murderer, thats ridiculous. He's a drunk driver, which is bad but it's not the same as murder. Havn't read the article, maybe someone can post it but I'm guessing that he also got a long probation period, community service, and a stayed sentance so that if he drinks and drives again its prison for him.
    Not sure about the 6 month thing either, just did a google search and it says maximum for a first offense is 6 months, minimum 48consecutive hours(assuming that is immediately after the arrest). Though that could be wrong or outdated.

    He didn't get off because he hd an excellent lawyer. I'll like to point out that the State of FL case was weaked becase the victim was not crossing at a crosswalk. It would have been nearly impossible to prove manslaughter with that fact. The DUI is the only thing they had on him. Seeing that e provided restituiton to the victims family ( alledged 5 mil) i think that 30 days is acceptable.

    Yeah ... it is six-months maximum for a first offense.
    If it was mandatory then I have a friend who would have been tossed in the slammer. He got a DUI a little less than a year ago and got probation and a ton of community service.
    Stallworth got pretty close to what everyone would have gotten in a similar case according to most legal analysts. I see no reason for them to lie.

    His jail term will be followed by two years of house arrest and eight years probation. A Miami-Dade County judge also ordered the National Football League player to pay $10,000 in fines and perform 1,000 hours
    I think it was a very good sentence. I don't think locking him up for a long period does much good, I don't think it makes the public safer and it does cost a lot of money. And it still sends a strong message that drinking and driving is not worth it.

    You are correct - he didn't get off scott free.

    Agreed.
    I was suprised by the two years house arrest to be honest.
    That is pretty substantial.

    1000 hours community service is substantial too. That's nearly 10 hours every Saturday for the next 2 years, although he'll probably be glad just to get out of the house.
