The big question is how much jailtime does DUI resulting in death carry in Las Vegas?

Henry Ruggs is only 22, but this could mean his NFL career is over already. In the short term it seems almost certain his season is over now. Unless he hires some really good lawyers that can prove he wasn’t drunk or high at the time of the accident, there’s a big chance he will be in jail for a long time, or at the very least the next two years.
Prayers up for everyone involved in this ordeal. RIP to the deceased driver of the Toyota Rav4. Drinking and driving is never a smart thing to do, and puts innocent people at risk.
