In Miami, Football Player Pleads Not Guilty to DUI Manslaughter Charges

Our South Florida defense attorneys have heard that Donte Stallworth, 28-year-old wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, pleaded not guilty to DUI manslaughter charges in a Miami-Dade courtroom last week. The defendant was not present for the hearing on Thursday morning, but his attorney entered the not guilty plea.

According to an affidavit, the defendant’s blood alcohol level was .126 when he reportedly hit and killed a 59-year-old man on a Miami Beach causeway. He is now free on $200,000 bail and is required to abstain from alcohol, not drive, and follow a curfew.

If convicted of DUI manslaughter, Stallworth faces up to 15 years in jail. His trial is scheduled for July 7th.
