The jury selection for Rams’ linebacker Leonard Little’s trial ended yesterday and testimony will begin today as the twelve people selected try to determine Little’s guilt or innocence related to a felony drunk driving charge.
Police say Little failed three field sobriety tests in the early hours of April 24, 2005 after they pulled him over for driving 78 miles per hour in a 55 MPH zone in Ladue, Missouri. The charge is a felony because of Little’s past with drinking and driving. In 1998 he was drunk when he struck a woman with his car. The woman later died and he plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter in 1999.
If found guilty, Little could face four years in prison.
