Lawyer expects Thrashers' Heatley to be Charged in Fatal Wreck

Okay. I'm glad that this is actually following through. I'd hate for pro athletes, especially one as careless as Dany Heatly was, to go free when he was responsible for the unfortunate death of a teammate. In this Yahoo! Sports article link, the Atlanta authorities are planning to move ahead with the investigation and file charges against the one time rookie of the year.
The most serious charge Heatley could face is vehicular homicide, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

I think that's a real sobering quote in the article.
