Real Housewives Of Orange County Star Shannon Beador Sentenced To 3 Years Probation In DUI Case


Reality TV star Shannon Beador, known for her role on the hit show ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ (RHOC), has been sentenced to three years of probation in her DUI case. The sentence was handed down by a judge, who also ordered Beador to pay fines and fees, complete 40 hours of community service, and attend a nine-month alcohol program.

Key Takeaway

‘RHOC’ star Shannon Beador has been sentenced to three years of probation in her DUI case, avoiding jail time. The sentence includes fines, community service, and an alcohol program. Beador’s BAC was .24% at the time of the crash that led to her arrest. She sustained injuries and has paid for the property damage caused by the incident.

Avoiding Jail Time

Despite the severity of the charges, Beador managed to avoid jail time. Instead, she will serve her sentence under informal probation, which will require her to comply with certain conditions and restrictions for the next three years.

The Legal Proceedings

In her absence, Beador’s attorney appeared in the Orange County courtroom to enter her plea of no contest. The reality star was charged with one count of driving under the influence (DUI) and one count of driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher. The judge dismissed an additional charge of hit-and-run with property damage.

The District Attorney of Orange County, Todd Spitzer, sought a harsher sentence for Beador, including 30 days of jail time. However, the judge ruled in favor of the probation sentence.
