On March 14th, just days after signing his roster bonus worth millions of dollars with the Cleveland Browns, NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth strikes and kills a pedestrian while driving under the influence in Miami, Florida. Stallworth’s maximum penalty was 15 years, however he will only serve 30 days. ESPN reports:

After his release from jail, Stallworth must serve two years of house arrest and spend eight years on probation. Lyons said the plea agreement will allow Stallworth to resume his football career. The Akron Beacon Journal reported that according to an NFL source, commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to discipline Stallworth before the Browns start training camp July 31.

Stallworth must also undergo drug and alcohol testing, will have a lifetime driver’s license suspension and must perform 1,000 hours of community service. Lyons said after five years, Stallworth could win approval for limited driving for reasons such as employment.
