Donte' Stallworth had the legal system come down on him pretty hard today. I mean 30 days of jail, 2 years home arrest and a lifetime ban of his driver's license for getting drunk, driving, and killing a 59 year old man? Doesn't that seem a little harsh to you all?
This is ridiculous, plain and simple. Mike Vick killed some dogs and had serve a couple of years in prison and a little house arrest himself. Stallworth literally runs over a guy drunk, kills the poor man and has to pull 30 days in jail?
I know that the family agreed to all of terms of the plea bargain and I am sure they were well compensated by Stallworth, but still this isn't right. My guess is Stallworth will be playing football for free for a few years to pay this one off. Thats if Goodell even allows him back on the field this decade. I am curious to see what type of punishment Stallworth will recieve for this from the good ole' commsioner of the league.
This just doesn't seem fair at all. I mean a guy was killed walking down the street and the killer will possibly be playing professional football again this year. There are some serious holes in the judicial system, come on Gary your a lawyer, you need to do something about this.
