Celebrities are often envied for their glamorous lives, especially when red carpet events are happening nearly every weekend. However, not all celebrities get to kick back and enjoy the awards season. Some of America’s favorite celebs find themselves in big legal trouble and must face the consequences of their actions, come better or worse. Here’s the roundup of last week’s celebrity sentencing news.
Lindsey Knickerbocker, daughter of Real Housewives of Orange County star Tammy Knickerbocker, has pleaded no contest to DUI, hit-and-run and battery of a police officer. In exchange for her plea, Knickerbocker has been sentenced to three years of probation and 129 hours of community service. She must also complete a nine-month first-offender alcohol program. Knickerbocker was arrested in January in Orange County.
New York Giants star David Diehl pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated driving while under the influence (DWI) in New York. As part of his plea deal, Diehl was sentenced to six months of probation. He must also pay $1,200 in restitution and $300 in fines, and is required to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet for 90 days. The DWI charges stemmed from a July 2012 incident where Diehl was arrested for driving with a blood alcohol content of more than twice the legal limit.
Rapper Lil Flip has pleaded not guilty to drug and weapons charges stemming from a Christmas-day arrest in Louisiana. The judge in the case set a pre-trial date for April. Lil Flip and his attorney have maintained the rapper’s innocence since his arrest.
Dazed and Confused star Jason London has pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and assault. The charges stem from an incident in Scottsdale, Arizona, in January. London claims that he was not the aggressor in the incident but was attacked by bouncers at a Scottsdale bar. His legal representative has made no public statement regarding the case. A judge has set an April pre-trial date.
Bronson Pelletier, who appeared in the Twilight franchise, pleaded no contest to a public intoxication charge he accrued after peeing in public in Los Angeles International Airport in December. Pelletier has been sentenced to two years of probation. He is also required to attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings over the course of the next 26 weeks.
