    Leonard Little?

    I read in a magazine at work that L.L. may be going to prison after the season? Felony manslaughter drunk driving. Can anyone tell me this is not true?

    I've heard that most of the court stuff will be taken care of after this season, so he shouldn't miss much playing time in '04. He's innocent until proven guilty. I can tell you for sure that the word "manslaughter" won't be included in this charge, thank gawd.

    Evil you are so right about the "Manslaughter" charge? I just wanted to know if the rumor had any weight to it. And so correct about guilty til proven innocent. But will this hinder his abilities this year?

    Why would manslaughter be an issue? I didn't think he hurt anyone this time?

    The main thing I'm wondering: did LL get caught in the same state both times? I'm assuming he did since he's being charged with a repeat offender type of offense. However, if each incident occurred in different states that might make a big difference in what happens to him.

    Regardless of whether or not he does jail time, he's most likely going to be suspended by the league if he's found guilty in any way. How many games he's suspended is debatable, but haven't some players had to sit out entire seasons due to violating the substance abuse policies multiple times? His first penalty was 4 games, so I'm guessing his second would be at least double that wouldn't it?

    2004 may indeed be LL's swan song for a while. If he's hit with a lengthy suspension 2005 may be a squandered season for him.

    Yes, it was the same State

    First time was downtown St. Louis. This time it was in a suburb called Ladue. Very prominent suburb.

    Very good points.

    However, I think it's important to note that his first offense -- in which the NFL suspended him four games -- involved manslaughter. This one does not. I don't say that to diminish the crime, but it's not exactly the same situation as before. That said, I've no clue how that would affect his suspension, though, or what exactly the NFL took into account when they suspended him before.
