Attorneys say Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth has agreed to plead guilty to DUI manslaughter charges and would serve some jail time for a Miami car crash in which a pedestrian was struck and killed.
Prosecutors and Stallworth's attorney confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday night that a deal has been struck. The 28-year-old Stallworth is expected to be in a Miami courtroom Tuesday to enter the plea.
Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office spokeswoman Terry Chavez says the family of victim Mario Reyes wants to resolve the case. She says the deal includes a short jail sentence and lengthy probation. She would not provide details.
Police say Stallworth had a blood-alcohol level of .126 after the crash, well above Florida's .08 limit to drive. Prosecutors say Stallworth struck Reyes after a night on the town. He could have faced up to 15 years in prison.
