Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch to plead guilty to reckless driving; lawyer thinks he'll avoid suspension

A DUI case that has been hanging over Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch since the summer of 2012 has reached a conclusion. Lynch has agreed to plead guilty to lesser a charge of reckless driving. The admission of guilt comes as part of a plea deal that will see Lynch receive two years probation and a to-be-determined fine. He will also need to attend six classes on driving safety.
"We are resolving the case Friday by pleading to a wet reckless," said Ivan Golde, Lynch's attorney. "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."
Lynch was arrested July 14, 2012 after an officer allegedly observed him driving in and out of lanes and nearly colliding with two cars. Lynch's blood-alcohol level was 0.08, the least amount above the legal limit
"I can't speak for the commissioner (Roger Goodell), but my feeling is Marshawn is OK and will avoid a suspension."

Fantasy Analysis:

Lynch was suspended for three games in 2009, but that was for a weapons charge, and that falls under a different league policy than drunk driving. As a first-time offender of this policy, Lynch's lawyer is right: He will most likely avoid a suspension.
