@Jay
She only has to do a 3 month program, Lindsay had to do an 18 month second offender program and as long as Faith doesn't get another DUI her probation will be complete

How the hell did she go from 2 counts of DUI to reckless driving? If that was a regular every day person there would have been no plea bargain, there would have been mandatory time behind bars, probably upwards of $20k in fines, and no license.

Pays to be rich and famous.

@dh it's 2 separate charges. One for DUI and one for driving with a BAC over .08. Also I'm a regular every day person and I had the same thing happen to me with the charges being reduced to reckless driving except I only got 24 months probation, 12 months less than Faith Evans. It can be a technicality, like the breathalyzer wasn't properly maintained, or the mishandling of evidence.

Hopefully she learned her lesson like I learned mine. Risking lives is stupid. Especially for someone who can afford a limo ride to any event/club/bar they wanted.

It sounds like she took a deal for a "wet" reckless driving which is about the same as a DUI as far as insurance and probation goes. If she drives after even one drink, she would become a second offender. She may have been right at .08 or very close so she was able to plead no lo contendere to the lesser charge.
