'That's So Raven' Star

Let's Make a (Plea) Deal!

10/24/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Orlando Brown
"That's So Raven" star Orlando Brown has struck a plea deal in his DUI case ... which will keep him out of jail, if he can keep himself out of trouble.

As TMZ first reported, Brown was busted back on August 12 for driving under the influence -- and he allegedly had a BAC of more than twice the legal limit.

Even though Brown's manager maintained his innocence ... the L.A. City Attorney's Office tells TMZ that Brown pled no contest this week to one count of driving with a BAC over .08%.

He was given 36 months probation, paid a $390 fine (plus penalty costs), sentenced to one day in jail (time served), ordered to undergo an alcohol education program, and attend 10 AA meetings.

And thus concludes a very special episode of "That's So Raven."

That's a good lawyer deal.

Just don't get drunk and drive again, stupid. Unless you think the "Lindsay" way to fame is the path to anything other than the end of your career.

Of course he will continue to be in trouble. He is black, right?

How the f*ck is this a plea deal?

He did not require a lawyer to plead "no contest". And those fines and penalties are standard here in California.

Isn't this close to the same deal Lindsay got when she got her first DUI? Let's hope he doesn't go down the same path. Of course, being black, he probably won't get the royal treatment like Linds if he messes up. Best of luck, Orlando.

lindsay lohan gets caught multiple times driving drunk or under the influences of drugs and gets no 36 months of probation, no 10 AA meetings no one day in jail and this young man has one DUI and this is unjust. so driving while white is a benefit look how it turned out for lindsay smdh.

Because my son isn't a "Star" and for having ZERO alocohol in his blood and for NOT even being DUI, he got a $1,500 fine, 10 days in jail, ( reduced to 2) a suspended license for one year, ordered to install an apparatus in his car, (that he can't drive anyway -due to no license) here in ARIZONA - and all of this because he was being HONEST, when asked "have you ever smoked marijuana?" and he said "yes", and then asked, "when did you do it the last time, and he replied, " last week " and since the THC is in the system longer than that, (though he doesn't ever drive DUI, he was handcuffed, taken away, charged with DUI, and handed the only sentence that he could possibly plea for without the ability to afford an attorney, or risk a month in jail and even greater penalties !)

So much for the Mesa, Arizona Court Justice ! And so much for Arizona's POLICE -ing, that was suspposed to be here to "Protect & Serve" that condemns people to Cruel & Unreasonable Punishment needlessly !

BY THE WAY: A driver in front of him slammed on his brakes and my son rear-ended him, but since he suffers from ADHD, he could not follow the officer's instructions perfectly - so he failed the field sobriety testing; though he did mention the officer that he had this condition - and also byt the way, he suffers a sleep disorder, so occasionally he will be unable to sleep no matter what and a small amount of marijuana helps him sleep, when everything else he tried has failed, but TRY TO TELL THAT TO TODAY'S EMBICILE JURIES, and especially in Mesa's MORMON Country !
