    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.
    Agreed.
    I was suprised by the two years house arrest to be honest.
    That is pretty substantial.
    I could think of a few worse punishments than spending a couple years couped up inside a multi-million dollar mansion with every amenity and luxury known to man but yeah...still pretty substantial none the less.

    Time for Stallworth to start tweeting.

    Since that is higher than the maximum sentence for vehicular manslaughter, I would say that there were additional charges.

    Vince Neil from Motley Crue did the same thing and got basically nothing.

    The money has no effect on the criminal trial. That's a civil issue to avoid a lawsuit.

    It was more of a complex case than most people made it out to be.

    Some people call him a murderer, but there is no malice aforethought.
    Voluntary manslaughter due to recklessness? It's hard to pin recklessness on someone, as the definition is vague, and if he was drunk it would be hard to pin recklessness on a drunk person.
    Involuntary manslaughter? The guy was not in a crosswalk, so that makes it even harder to put the manslaughter charge on him, since the man was legally just as part of an accident as Stallworth was.

    Really the DUI was the only concrete charge against him.

    The family wanted this trial to be over and get on with their lives.

    Stallworth reached a plea bargain, getting 30 days in jail, 2 years house arrest, 10 years probation, and 1000 hours community service.

    The family wanted it to be done with, the civil suit was settled, and he got a pretty substantial sentence for a plea bargain especially since all they really had against him was the DUI, as the rest of the case involved vague definitions and the complexity of the man not crossing in a crosswalk, some could say his own "laziness" caused his death. The case would have taken forever, this result is better for all parties IMO.

    Probably bumped up to Voluntary manslaughter like I mentioned in my previous post because of gross negligence due to recklessness. He must not have had a very good lawyer though, that's a tough one to prove.

    Re: Special Treatment my BUTT

    The worst punishment of all is living with that man's death on his conscience.
    It is not as though he was trying to murder somebody.
    It was an accident and he was irresponsible.
    If anything he should have his license revoked for a decade and do a bunch of community service.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Correct

    Also his license is revoked on a lifetime ban. I understand it wasn't intentional, but he intentionally got into a vehicle while drinking... For a man with millions of dollars a taxi was a much better choice, but the nfl has a reputation to keep and he found it was better to drive. I believe a lifetime ban in the nfl would be appropriate. Why so harsh, because the man who is not living has a plain out lifetime ban!

    The recklessness is being drunk and getting behind the wheel.
