Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih

Dodges Jail in DUI Case

breaking news

Disgraced former Miss USA Rima Fakih has managed to avoid the slammer in her DUI case ... as long as she can stay out of trouble for the next 6 months.

A Michigan judge sentenced the 26-year-old beauty queen to 6 months probation and 20 hours of community service ... after she pleaded no contest last month to driving while visibly impaired back in December.  Fakih must also complete an alcohol education course.

As we previously reported, cops say Fakih was disoriented and was slurring her speech after she was pulled over for speeding and weaving through traffic.

Cops also say Fakih's blood alcohol level was more than DOUBLE the legal limit ... and claim she had a half-empty bottle of wine on the floorboard behind the driver's seat.

The media always makes it seem like celebrities are given such preferential treatment in these cases. News flash... nobody actually gets sentenced to jail for a first offense DUI that doesn't result in death or bodily injury. I'm not defending drunk driving, but she didn't really "dodge jail". She got a pretty standard punishment.

It begins with the first DUI offense. I believe even a first DUI offense should dictate at minimum 1 day in jail. When this little drunkard kills somebody, this Michigan judge should be the one to tell the family.

Who cares? The girl is seriously hot. And apparently likes to party.

How many girls can go 2x the legal DUI limit and still drive a vehicle? That, to me, is a real skill.

This is BullSh**, these Arabs are taking over Michigan and we are doing nothing. She has done nothing but run around Michigan so far this week saying how sorry she is to get PR... Give her the same punishment the rest of us would have gotten...
