Donte Stallworth was released from jail early Friday morning. The Cleveland Browns player served 24 of his 30 day jail sentence for manslaughter at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami. He plead guilty to D.U.I. manslaughter after striking and killing a pedestrian on March 14 after a long night of partying. At the time of his arrest he had a blood alcohol level of .126. In Florida the limit is .08. He also tested positive for marijuana at the time.
As part of a plea agreement, he was sentenced to 30 days in jail, two years house arrest and eight years of probation. His driver’s license was also suspended for life, he must perform 1,000 hours of community service, and he settled with the victim’s family for an undisclosed amount of money.
According to his attorney Christopher Lyons, Stallworth will serve the final six days of his prison sentence at home and plans to:
“Fulfill his obligations under the plea agreement and spend time with his family.”
30 days in jail for killing a person and Vick gets 23 months for killing dogs. Does this not make any sense to anyone else either? I’m just sayin….
