Giants prospect Angel Villalona charged with murder

FOXSports.com is reporting that the top prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization Angel Villalona has been charged with murder in the Dominican Republic.

Pablo Peguero, the Giants' representative for Latin America, said Friday that 19-year-old Angel Villalona can't join the team in the United States because the U.S. Embassy in the Dominican Republic has revoked his visa.

Villalona, 19, offered to pay the family of the victim 140,000 dollars to drop the case against him. The family reportedly has accepted the money. 

Villalona, who has pleaded not guilty, could face up to 20 years in prison if the case is heard and he is found guilty.

It'll be interesting to see if Villalona faces any sort of suspension from the Giants or MLB, or if he is released and given a second chance elsewhere.
