PX001_72B2_9.JPGDonte Stallworth, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver who plead guilty to DUI manslaughter in Miami, has been released from jail after serving 24 days of 30-day sentence.

The Associated Press is reporting that his attorney, Christopher Lyons, says Stallworth was released from the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center early Friday.

Stallworth admitted that he was under the influence when he hit and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes with his Bentley on Miami's MacArthur Causeway March 14. Stallworth's blood-alcohol level was over the legal limit and he had pot in his system.

Stallworth faces two years of house arrest and 10 years of probation as part of his sentence. He'll also have to perform 1,000 hours of community service and will never be able to drive again. 

Stallworth has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL. 

Was Stallworth's sentence a joke of justice taking, say, Michael Vick's dog-fighting sentence as an example? (poll)
