This is nothing new...same sort of thing with "Pacman" Jones. It's one of the reasons I can't stand most pro sports, especially pro football and basketball...a good half the playerbase are nothing but thugs.
Judges and minimum sentences on DUIs are rather inclined towards pwning the sh*t out of the defendants. I've seen pro se defendants get the maximum for speeding while drunk, much less having a wreck, hitting someone, or god forbid killing anyone.
I think I know what the court is doing.Tallworth also must undergo drug and alcohol testing, will have a lifetime driver's license suspension and must perform 1,000 hours of community service.
If he is sincerely remorseful, he can be used as a powerful tool as far as speaking to young people about alcohol and drunk driving. This happens from time to time in CA with celebrities. But the usual sentence is 6mos. to 1 year.
Also, the fact that the guy didn't flee the scene -- that says something to a judge.
MICHAEL VICK WAS NOT PROSECUTED FOR DOG FIGHTING. HE SERVED TIME FOR VIOLATING THE RICO ACT. JESUS JUMPED UP MARY, PEOPLE. ENOUGH WITH THE VICK SHIT.:mad:
Nothing personal Bubba, Jumpy.:D
On edit: Vick also failed a piss test while out on bail.
