Marshawn Lynch resolving DUI case with reckless driving guilty plea

National Football Post

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is resolving his driving under the influence case with a guilty plea to a lesser charge.

He will plead guilty to an alcohol-related reckless driving case in Oakland, Lynch's lawyer, Ivan Golde, told ESPN. The adjudicated case is expected to result in two years of probation and will have to attend six classes on driving safety and alcohol consumption as well as a fine.

“We are resolving the case Friday by pleading to a wet reckless,” Golde said. “We have a strong case for trial and could win the case, but the last thing he needs is to go through a public trial. He’s a Super Bowl champion and he has endorsements pending.

"For a guy in his position, it just doesn’t make any sense to go through a public trial. He has a lot at stake here. You know Marshawn. He’s not a media guy. It wouldn’t have been good for him to go through all that.”
