Paul Pelosi Avoids Jail Time in Intoxicated Driving Plea

Paul Pelosi, the husband of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pleaded guilty Tuesday for driving under the influence of alcohol in a May car crash in Napa County, Ca., the Wall Street Journal reports. Pelosi was sentenced to five days in jail but received two days’ credit for time served and two days’ credit for his conduct. The court ordered him to perform eight hours of community service instead of serving the fifth day in jail.

Napa County Judge Joseph Solga placed Pelosi on probation for three years. He was fined $1,723 in court fees and ordered to pay more than $4,900 in victim restitution for medical bills and lost wages. Pelosi, 82, was arrested on two misdemeanor charges related to driving intoxicated. The second charge was dismissed. Mrs. Pelosi wasn’t with Paul Pelosi during the crash. He owns Financial Leasing Services, a San Francisco-based investment firm. The Pelosis married in 1963 and own a home and vineyard in Napa County.
