Luann de Lesseps Avoids Jail With One Year Probation That Includes NO Alcohol

Luann de Lesseps got some great news this week. The former Countess will not be serving any jail time nor will she be considered a felon. The Real Housewives of New York star has reached a plea deal over her drunken Christmas debacle in Palm Beach.

Luann dodged a big bullet where felonies are concerned. She plead guilty to lesser charges of battery, trespassing and disorderly intoxication. Lu will be on probation for one year and during that time she will not be able to use drugs or drink alcohol.

This will make for an interesting season of RHONY, no? Well, Sonja Morgan was still sassy Sonja with a sexy J when she decided to stop drinking during filming, right? And I think her co-stars will be supportive.

Aside from that, Luann will also have to perform 10 hours per month of community service for five months, for a total of 50 hours. She also has to attend two AA meetings per week in NY. AND she had to attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim impact class. In addition to those rules, she’ll also have to submit to random drug/alcohol tests during her year of probation.

TELL US – DID LUANN GET OFF EASY? WILL SHE BE AS MUCH FUN ON RHONY IF SHE CAN’T DRINK?
