Attorney: Lynch to plead down DUI case

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch expects to see his driving under the influence trial in Oakland, Calif., come to an end today when he pleads guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving. Lynch was arrested in July 2012 on investigation of driving under the influence. Lynch’s attorney, Ivan Golde, says he believes that Lynch had a strong enough case to win at trial, but said he did not want a public trial considering the running back’s high profile with Seattle coming off a Super Bowl win. Golde said Lynch will plead guilty to a “wet reckless.” Lynch will have to take six driving safety classes and pay a $1,080 fine. – Associated Press
