Donte Stallworth, wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, was sentenced to 30 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to a DUI manslaughter charge in Florida.
The incident occurred back on March 14, after a night of drinking at a Miami beach hotel bar, when Stallworth struck and killed a pedestrian with his black Bentley GT coupe, 59-year-old construction worker Mario Reyes, as he was walking across MacArthur Causeway. Stallworth’s blood alcohol content was .126. Florida’s legal limit is 0.08.
The plea deal allowed Stallworth to avoid up to 15 years in prison if he was convicted for DUI manslaughter.
In addition to Donte Stallworth being sentenced to 30 days in jail, he must also complete 1,000 community service hours and is on probation for 10 years. His driver’s license has been suspended for life as well.
“He cannot drive ever again for any reason. That is what the (victim’s) family wanted. The family urged us to do this.”
Stallworth has also settled monetarily with the Reyes family, with the figure kept confidential.
