It often seems that celebrities have it easy. They lead comfortable lives and enjoy the best that the world has to offer. However, even celebrities can end up in situations where they have to face a judge for sentencing. Here’s the roundup of a few recent celebrity sentencings you may have missed.
Country singer Randy Travis was sentenced to 180 days in jail, 100 hours of community service and 30 days in rehab in connection with a DUI charge to which he pleaded guilty. Travis must also have an ignition lock installed on his personal vehicle. Travis’ lawyer notes that he may not serve any jail time as Travis has completed probation successfully since the incident. According to Travis’ lawyer, the singer has given up on drinking and adopted a sober life.
Criminal Minds star Thomas Gibson pleaded guilty to a DUI charge that stemmed from a January incident in downtown Los Angeles. In exchange for his plea, Gibson was sentenced to 36 months of probation and will pay $300 in court fees. Gibson’s attorney made no comment about the plea deal, which allowed Gibson to escape a reckless driving charge. The actor reportedly refused a breathalyzer test when he was pulled over, which Maryland DUI attorneys can tell you usually results in the automatic loss of your license.
Ex Korn drummer David Silveria pleaded guilty to one charge of driving under the influence of sleeping pills. As part of his plea deal, Silveria must complete three years of informal probation, attend a first-time offender program and sit in on a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim impact panel. Silveria has made no public comment about the case.
Travis, Gibson and Silveria have certainly kept a few DUI lawyers busy!
