Another Dolphins player in trouble with the law

Miami Dolphins Defensive End Phillip Merling was officially charged with Aggravated Battery on a Pregnant Person today. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years state prison. In fact, under Florida's sentencing guidelines, if convicted he would likely wind up doing prison time; however, there are always exceptions to the general rule. First, the prosecutors have to obtain a conviction. If the alleged victim doesn't want to press charges, and the police cannot prove the crime by independent evidence, then they may have to drop the charges against him.
