Farrah Abraham Strikes Plea Deal in DUI Case, Avoids Jail Time: Report
After originally pleading not guilty, Farrah Abraham has reportedly struck a plea deal in her DUI case. A Douglas County D.A.'s Office official tells TMZ that the Teen Mom-turned-sex-tape star agreed to plead guilty to aggravated DUI in court on June 20.
As part of the deal, prosecutors will ask for probation. If the judge agrees, Abraham will avoid jail time. Prosecutors will also ask that the 22-year-old MTV star be ordered to pay $500 in fines, and have her driving privileges suspended. The remaining charges of disorderly conduct and refusing to take a field sobriety test, however, would be dropped.
Abraham was arrested in her native Nebraska in March. Her attorney initially issued a not guilty plea in court on April 29, and Abraham maintained her innocence during an Apr. 19 appearance on Dr. Phil.
"Yes, I was drunk," the mom to daughter Sophia, 3, said. "I was not driving. I was parked . . . I drove around the corner and parked."
She argued, "If I was still driving and then the cop pulled me over then, yeah, that's really driving drunk."
In an interview with Us Weekly in May, Abraham said her arrest was "really nuts," but she's moving forward. "Life will sort itself out," she said. "But you know what? Going through hell and back, I feel like I have learned a lot."
