A few months ago, Cleveland Browns receiver Donte Stallworth got drunk and was speeding in his Bentley when he struck and killed a pedestrian. You or I do this, and we're going down for a long time. Luckily for him, he's rich and famous!

AP said:
MIAMI – Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth is going to serve 30 days in jail after pleading guilty in Florida to a DUI manslaughter charge.

The plea deal announced Tuesday calls for the 28-year-old Stallworth to also serve 10 years' probation and do 1,000 community service hours for killing a pedestrian he hit with his car. Stallworth had faced up to 15 years in prison.

Police say Stallworth was drinking at a hotel bar before the March 14 crash that killed 59-year-old construction worker Mario Reyes. Tests showed Stallworth's blood-alcohol content was .126.

Stallworth also reached a confidential financial settlement with the Reyes' family. A person close to the negotiations told The Association Press about the agreement on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the deal.

Being a Pittsburgh Steeler Fan, I hate the Browns anyway. :rolleyes:

He must have gave a nice chunk of change to the family to only get 30 days in prison. :nono:

It ain't right. I'm wondering right now if he did this to my wife (for instance). Would I accept a very large cash amount or insist he goes to jail for a long time. Hmmmm.............:lildevil:

I am going to play devil's advocate here, and go out on a limb. Maybe Mr Reyes stepped out into traffic, and did not see Mr. Stallworth's Bently. Hitting Mr. Reyes might have been inevitable, regardless if Mr. Stallworth had been drunk. All I am saying is I need to see the facts of the case before I pass judgement on anybody.
