No one is above DUI charges. If you are caught, police will try to arrest you. It doesn’t matter if you’re a celebrity or not. Recently we talked about how Hayley Hasselhoff was arrested for DUI. Now we know more about what happened and how she was punished from PopCulture.com
She was charged with one count of DUI. She pleaded no-contest to her charges and cut a deal with the prosecution. Instead of six months in jail and a $1000 fine, she’ll serve three years of probation, pay a $390 fine, complete a 90-day alcohol recovery program, and have an ignition interlock installed on her car.
Hasselhoff was found passed out on a 101 Freeway off-ramp. Her BAC was 0.14.
As you can see, even with a deal the penalties for DUI are harsh and last for years. The prosecution has many penalties they can throw at you or use to make a deal. A skilled DUI lawyer can negotiate and evaluate any plea deal the prosecution offers and determine whether it’s fair or if you need to fight.
