Stallworth Goes to Jail

for 30 days I thought Stallworth was a great player from back in his days with the Saints, But seriously How do you explain to the family of the guy he killed why he's only getting 30 days. Complete bullshit if you or I had done the same thing our asses would be rotting in prison for at least 10-15 years

Re: Stallworth Goes to Jail

it sucks but thats the county we live in. if your a high profile celebrity with $$ your jail time is reduced and you get special treatment. like getting to choose which prison you want to stay in?! hahaha i can almost guarntee you plaxico burress will not serve NYC's mandatory 3 1/2 year sentence for criminal posession of a hang gun conviction.

Re: Stallworth Goes to Jail

Can he not get a license in any state? What about a foreign license? Certain states do not share info - so a Wisconsin DMV may still issue a license (which would be valid in Florida).

Exactly. Some car is coming out soon that we won't be able to resist driving. "Money Makes the World Go Round" and also makes others turn a blind eye on the matter if enough of it gets thrown around.

Re: Stallworth Goes to Jail

He'll get some kind of conditional license that allows him to drive to "work" and get the subsidies of life. IE. He'll still be driving doing whatever he wants.
Just another showing of what money can do for you. Fucking clowns are above the law.

Re: Stallworth Goes to Jail

Well, when you say 'He killed someone, admitted it and is only serving 30 days in jail.' it does sound like he's getting special treatment. Of course that's the way the fucking media portrays it because it's what gets the story. You should know by now that the media doesn't actually report on fact anymore and this is yet another example.

Let's look at the details of the situation because it's not so cut and dry. Stallworth admittedly had a couple cocktails (not intoxicated) before driving his automobile. The victim was rushing across the street not in a designated cross walk from in between two cars to catch a bus. Stallworth did NOT flee the scene and stayed and tried to help. He was fully cooperative with the law enforcement officers and didn't lawyer up and attempt to weasel his way out of it as most people would. He admitted to it from day one and did nothing but own it and do everything in his power to seek forgiveness from the vitctims family... which he did. He doesn't have a track record of drinking and driving nor is he a convicted murder. The fact that he had a drink or two really had no bearing on this situation and if you know ALL of the details he actually got quite a higher sentence then had it been just some regular Joe that wasn't in the eyes of the media and didn't have tens of millions of dollars in net worth that could be paid out to the family. It's just a shitty shitty situation and the honest truth is in this case it could have just as easily been any of us in this exact same situation. He's been forgiven by the victims family and has received a fairly steep sentence given the situation so I don't feel the need to berate him and drag this on as if it somehow will bring further justice to the situation.

I know how people just love to vilify those that have more money/power/success but sometimes life is a little more difficult than that.
