House Speaker Pelosi’s Husband Pleads ‘Not Guilty’…Wait ‘Til You See His Consequences
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul pleaded guilty to a DUI charge and was back in a Napa County court on Tuesday for the case that continues to spark questions.
Back on August 3rd, Paul Pelosi pleaded “not guilty” through his legal representatives in the case. But he flipped and entered a “guilty” plea this week. This will avoid a trail for the multimillionaire.
The husband of the Speaker of the House will escape this case with a slap on the wrist sentence that totals eight hours in a work program.
The plea deal that Pelosi entered included five days in jail, but he received credit for two days served and another two for good conduct. That left just one and the judge allowed that day to be the 8 hours of community service.
Don’t think that is enough of a consequence, well, there is also a three-month course on the dangers of drinking and driving. And there will be an ignition interlock device installed in his car for one year. He will pay…wait for it…a $150 fine and will be on probation for three years.
The man could have killed someone when he made the decision to get behind the wheel drunk well beyond the legal limit, but $150 and barely on a workday should suffice.
I’m sure, the course will have a huge impact on the 82-year-old man. Surely this will teach an old dog some new tricks.
This well-connected man gets a slap on the wrist, while the community around him gets a slap in the face.
Pelosi was visibly intoxicated when stopped by officers. He tried to use his “get out of jail free card” when he handed the police his membership card for a charity benefitting the families of California Highway Patrol along with his identification. Then he subsequently failed a field sobriety test.
Authorities still have not released dash or body camera footage of the accident scene or interactions with Pelosi.
