The husband of U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted guilt Tuesday to reckless driving under the influence charges stemming from a May incident in California’s wine region, receiving a five-day prison term and three years of probation.
According to Napa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Solga, Paul Pelosi has already served two days in jail and gained good behavior credit for two further days.
Solga said during Paul Pelosi’s sentence, which he did not attend, that Paul Pelosi will spend eight hours in the court’s labor program in place of the remaining day. Unless the court orders differently, DUI misdemeanor offenders are allowed to appear in court through their counsel under state law.
Paul Pelosi will also be required to complete a three-month drinking driving program and install an ignition interlock device, which requires the driver to produce a breath sample before the engine can start, as part of his probation. According to the judge, he will also have to pay over $5,000 in victim compensation for medical costs and lost income, as well as roughly $2,000 in fines.
Following a May 28 collision in Napa County, north of San Francisco, Paul Pelosi was detained after a DUI test revealed he had a blood alcohol percentage of.082%, slightly above the legal limit. Officers responding to the incident just after 10 p.m. near the wine country town of Yountville reported Pelosi was driving a 2021 Porsche Carrera.
Pelosi was instable on his feet, his speech was slur, and he had a distinct stench of an alcoholic beverage, according to California Highway Patrol investigators. When cops inquired for identification, Pelosi handed them his driver’s license and an 11-99 Foundation card, according to the lawsuit. The 11-99 Foundation provides assistance to CHP workers and their families.
Because of the injuries sustained by the SUV’s 48-year-old driver, prosecutors filed the case as a misdemeanor. They have refused to name the driver, citing the individual’s wish for privacy. The driver claimed discomfort in his upper right arm, right shoulder, and neck to district attorney’s office investigators the day after the incident. He also mentioned having headaches. keep reading about Midtown Shooting.
