Dorial Green-Beckham Gets Off Easy In Drunk Driving Case … Judge Says 'We're All Pulling For You'

Ex-NFL wideout Dorial Green-Beckham avoided serious jail time for his December drunk driving arrest … in part ’cause the judge says he can still influence the community in his hometown.
As TMZ Sports reported …DGB was busted for DWI back on Dec. 30 in Missouri when a cop suspected the ex-Eagles WR was intoxicated while picking up a friend at 3 AM.
Cops were right. He later pled guilty to misdemeanor DWI and was facing six months behind bars and a $ 1,000 fine.
But, when the 25-year-old appeared in court for sentencing Monday … the Greene County judge let him off easy, in part because DGB — as one of the greatest H.S. football players in the town’s history — can still have an impact on kids in the community.
“We’re all pulling for you,” the judge said, via the Springfield News-Leader.
“Don’t forget that. This whole community is pulling for you.”
The judge sentenced Dorial to 2 years of unsupervised probation, 60 hours of community services and a substance awareness traffic program.
DGB was the top-rated recruit in the 2012 class … but flamed out at both Missouri and in the NFL thanks, in large part, to off-the-field issues.
Dorial’s attorney told the Springfield News-Leader he could be trying to make a comeback to football … perhaps in the Canadian Football League.
Remember, HE’S ONLY 25!!!
Good luck …
