An arraignment hearing is set in Miami for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth on DUI manslaughter charges stemming from a March car crash in which a pedestrian died.

Stallworth is not expected to be in the courtroom Thursday, where his attorney plans to enter a not guilty plea.

The 28-year-old Stallworth faces up to 15 years if convicted. Police say Stallworth was driving drunk after a night on the town when he struck and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes on a Miami Beach causeway.

Stallworth, a former wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints, is free on $200,000 bail and is required to abstain from alcohol, not drive and observe a curfew.
