Nicole Richie

Probation Extended

Because of Babies

6/22/2010 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Nicole Richie's probation was just extended by a year, because she's been so preoccupied with her kids, she hasn't taken the required number of alcohol ed courses.

Nicole is on probation because of her 2006 DUI, when she was arrested after driving the wrong way on an L.A. freeway.

Nicole's probation was due to terminate next month, but today in court, her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, explained to the judge ... because she had program-approved leaves of absence in order to deliver and care for her two kids, she didn't complete the required number of alcohol ed courses.

So Nicole's probation was extended until March, 2011. 

The judge said he would terminate her probation earlier if she completes the alcohol ed program before March. 

The alcohol ed report gives Nicole high marks, noting, "Her attitude is excellent."  Hear that Lindsay?

Oh PLEASE! We should be proud/feel sorry for her because she had two kids and NO JOB. She has plenty of time to get this done. If it was you or I; we'd be cooling our feet in jail.



Don't insult me.

Dude    

My question is......... If she hasn't complteted her alcohol classes is she still driving. And if she is still driving is she driving a suspended license? California DMV requires the alchohol classes to be completed before you can recieve your drivers license. Just something to look into. Espcially since this is the same lady who was driving down the wrong side of the road.

@Bobby
SCH is one excellent lawyer Nicole was driving on the wrong side of the freeway and it was her 2nd dui. She still managed to get her the mandatory minimum of 4 days but i think the pregnancy also helped.
