Paul Pelosi, Husband of House Speaker, Gets 5 Days in Jail and 3 Years Probation for DUI

Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was sentenced to five days in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence, The Associated Press reports.

Pelosi was charged with driving under the influence after a May crash in California’s wine country. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DUI on Tuesday.

A judge sentenced him to five days in jail and three years of probation.

Pelosi already served two days in jail and received good conduct credit for two other days, Napa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Solga said, according to the AP.

Pelosi will work eight hours in the court’s work program in lieu of the remaining day.

More penalties:

Pelosi was also sentenced to three years of probation.

He will be required to attend a three-month drinking driver class and install a breathalyzer in his car as part of the terms.

Pelosi will also be required to pay $2,000 in fines and pay $5,000 in victim restitution for medical bills and lost wages, according to the AP.

Dangerous crash:

Pelosi was charged in a May 28 crash in Napa County after a breathalyzer showed that he had a blood alcohol content of 0.82%, just over the legal limit.

Officers reported that Pelosi was “unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.”

Pelosi was charged after another driver was injured in the crash.

He was released on $5,000 bail after his arrest.
