Paul Pelosi, Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband and an avid stock trader, has pleaded guilty to a DUI (driving under the influence) charge stemming from his arrest in late May when he crashed his Porsche in Napa Valley, California, according to court records obtained by TMZ.
Pelosi was involved in a two-vehicle car crash about an hour before being arrested for driving under the influence on May 28. Court documents later revealed that he had slurred speech, red and watery eyes, and a drug in his system at the time of his arrest. But prosecutors in Napa County later walked back what they called a “boilerplate” drug allegation in the DUI complaint.
Paul Pelosi was sentenced to three years probation and no additional jail time after pleading guilty to one count of DUI. He was also sentenced to five days of jail time — but he is getting credit for time served. He already served two days in jail at the time of his arrest, and he received conduct credit for two other days. As for the third day, Pelosi reportedly will work eight hours in the court’s work program to make up for that fifth day.
His probation terms also require that he complete a three-month drinking and driving course, and have an ignition interlock device on his car for one year. He also has to pay a $150 fine.
